WELLFORD, S.C. — A car owner shot at two teenagers, killing one, after they tried to steal his vehicle Tuesday night, Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said.
Wright said the shooting happened just before 11 p.m. on James Raymond Court in Wellford, near Martin Lane and John Dodd Road.
Wright said the homeowner called 911 to report the shooting.
The sheriff said one suspect was hit and killed, and deputies searched into early Wednesday morning for the other young man who ran from the scene.
By Wednesday afternoon, they had the second suspect, a 13-year-old boy, in custody.
"I just really want you to really commit yourself to praying for both sides," Wright said. "Both of them are going through a hard time. This is awful."
