NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina state police say a white man has been arrested in the shooting death of a black man whose body was then dragged several miles down a road.
Multiple media outlets reported that State Law Enforcement Division director Reggie Lloyd said Wednesday the killing in Newberry County is being investigated as a possible hate crime. Lloyd says the FBI is assisting in the investigation of the shooting death of 30-year-old Anthony Hill of Winnsboro. Lloyd says investigators don't have a motive yet.
Newberry County sheriff's deputies say they followed a trail of blood to the mobile home of Gregory Collins of Newberry County. Collins refused to come out and officers used tear gas to force him out.
Collins has been charged with murder.
It's unclear if he has an attorney.
