ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A 32-year-old Orangeburg man was arrested and charged with murder after a Thursday night shooting.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office said Uzomah Theophilus Colter shot 36-year-old Larry Rucker of Orangeburg once in the head.

Deputies received a report of a shooting just after 11:30pm. "The preliminary investigation indicates the victim and Colter were believed to have argued sometime last week," said Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, "The two saw each other again last night (Thursday) when the victim was visiting friends at the residence. Colter entered the residence, and the two exchanged gunfire, fatally injuring the victim."

The incident remains under investigation.

Colter is expected to make his first court appearance Monday.
