SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A teen has been sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading guilty to a shooting at a grocery store parking lot in South Carolina last summer;

Spartanburg County prosecutor Barry Barnette said in a news release that 19-year-old Gettis Andre Chambers of Una pleaded guilty Monday to voluntary manslaughter and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Barnette said Chambers shot 28-year-old Tyshann R. Smith of Spartanburg to death Aug. 7. The prosecutor said the shooting happened while the men were in a car parked at a Spartanburg grocery store.

Chambers was arrested in Maryland two weeks later.

Police say Smith had shot and killed 21-year-old Raymond Turner of Spartanburg before being shot to death by Chambers.

A third person was not seriously injured in the shooting.
