COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies have charged a teenager with murder in the shooting death of a man found in a car in Richland County.

Sgt. Brittany Scott tells local media outlets that deputies were called to a report of shots fired around 9:30 p.m. Monday and found the car. The man later died at a local hospital.

On Tuesday, deputies charged 17-year-old Jose Reyes with murder. He is in jail but it was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

The name of the shooting victim, who was shot several times, has not yet been released by the coroner. But authorities say Reyes knew the victim.

No other details were immediately available.
