Argument turns into deadly shootout

A homicide investigation is underway after an argument turned into a fatal shooting, according to Lt. Kevin Bobo of the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office. Bobo says that on Friday, around 7:50 p.m., officers responded to a home on Long Branch Road regarding a shooting. When officers arrived on scene, they found a man in the yard with two visible gunshot wounds, according to Bobo. The police rendered aid to the gunshot victim until help arrived and took him to the hospital, Bobo said. According to Bobo, the man died in hospital during the operation. Coroner Rusty Clevenger of the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office identified the man as Joshua Lee Waters, 47, of Chesnee. Clevenger says Waters died from his injuries around 9:25 p.m. at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. Bobo says others in the home were separated and questioned. The owner and a witness were both taken to his office for further interviews. During interviews, authorities learned that everyone in the home had been drinking and an argument began inside, according to Bobo. The owner asked Waters to leave several times, but he refused, Bobo said. According to Bobo, the argument escalated outside with Waters attacking the owner. Bobo says the homeowner shot Waters in self-defense. This remains an active investigation and at this time no criminal charges will be filed against the owner.
