SC man arrested in weekend shooting death of man

LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man has been arrested in the weekend shooting death of another man in his home.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports Lancaster police have arrested 41-year-old Rodney Thompson of Kershaw and charged him with murder.

Police say 28-year-old Quintal James of Kershaw was shot at his home around 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Lancaster County Deputy Coroner Glen Crawford says James died about an hour later, before he could be flown to a hospital.

The sheriff's office said Monday that Thompson is accused of going to James' home and firing a pistol when he opened the door.

Thompson was arrested in Kershaw County and is being held in the Lancaster County jail. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
