CLINTON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man who called 911 to report a fatal drive by shooting has been charged with murder after an autopsy on the victim didn’t match the suspect’s story.

Laurens County Sheriff’s Lt. Ben Blackmon told The Index-Journal of Greenwood ( ) the deputies were suspicious of 24-year-old Samuel Davis’ story starting shortly after he called police on Wednesday.

Blackmon says investigators quickly determined Davis stole guns from a nearby home and arrested him.

Blackmon says the autopsy results on 32-year-old Sammy Tribble III came back and didn’t match Davis’ story that he saw Tribble killed in a drive-by shooting in front of a home in Clinton.

Davis is awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
