GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) - Officials say a North Carolina man has been shot to death outside a Gaffney nightclub.
Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said in a news release that 20-year-old Sergio Trevon Leary of Boiling Springs died early Sunday morning after being shot outside Peggy's Place.
Fowler said an argument started after a man approached Leary and some friends who were standing outside the club about 3 a.m.
One person was hit in the head with a handgun, then shots were fired. Leary was hit and ran about 30 yards from the bar before collapsing. Fowler said Leary died at the scene.
Gaffney police are investigating the shooting.
