In result of the investigation stemming from the shooting that occurred yesterday at 145 Sam Langley Road, investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office have arrested and charged 40 year-old, Jason Paul Sikkila with Stalking and Assault and Battery 3rd Degree.

During the course of investigation, it was determined that Sikkila drove to the home owner’s residence at 145 Sam Langley Road, and proceeded to verbally engage him in an altercation. At that time, the home owner demanded for Sikkila to leave, however Sikkila refused and proceeded to attack the victim while the victim was sitting in his vehicle. Acting in self-defense, the victim obtained a firearm that was in his truck and shot Sikkila at least one time. Sikkila fled the scene and deputies located him a short time later.

After being treated for non-life threatening injuries, Sikkila was transported to the Greenville County Detention Center where he remains on a temporary bond.

Investigators did learn that Sikkila and the victim are acquaintances and have known each other for a period of time.
