Reeder said that the Laurens County Coroner’s Office has ruled the death a suicide by self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Just before 3:30pm on Tuesday, deputies were dispatched to the 1100 block of Simmons Road in the Greenpond Community of Laurens County in reference to a domestic violence call for service.
While deputies were responding to this call, dispatchers with the Laurens County E-911 informed deputies that a person inside the residence had injuries from a gunshot. When deputies arrived at the scene, they located a black male that had an injury that consisted of a gunshot wound to the upper extremities of his body.
The victim was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital for medical treatment.
