The Spartanburg County Sheriff''s Office issued the following press release Tuesday afternoon:

Last night (Monday) at approx. 10:00 PM, deputies responded to 1011 Thomas Rd., Spartanburg, SC, 29302, in reference to a drive-by shooting.

Upon their arrival, deputies found a male victim inside the residence that had been struck by one of the rounds fired from outside, and there were 2 other females inside the residence that were uninjured. EMS also responded to the scene and pronounced the victim deceased.

The 2 females were transported to the office for interviews, where it was learned that this incident may have occurred as a result of a disputed drug transaction.
