GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A sheriff says a 19-year-old man forced a teen into some woods in South Carolina and shot and killed her after accusing her of spreading lies.

Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis said a friend of the victim made a frantic 911 call Wednesday afternoon and said her friend had been shot.

Lewis says the friend led deputies into woods near the Saluda River where they found Daniel Sherrer, who is charged with killing 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez.

Senior Deputy Coroner Jeff Fowler says Martinez-Gonzalez was shot and had other injuries.

Lewis said at a news conference that Sherrer and Martinez-Gonzalez knew each other, but he wasn’t sure their exact relationship.

Martinez-Gonzalez is charged with murder and kidnapping. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
