A man was shot, and he later passed away from his wounds. Officials, however, have not yet commented on the specifics of a suspect.
We were able to speak with Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves, who was there during the incident. “At this time, our inquiry is still in its early phases. We are investigating the site and speaking with potential suspects as well as witnesses. So, as of right now, I wouldn’t say that the cops are holding anyone in custody.
