Spartanburg police said they are looking for a man in connection with the shooting death of another man early Monday morning.

The shooting happened about 5 a.m. at 108 Norris St.

Police said that when officers arrived they found a man, identified as 27-year-old Cedric Moss, lying on the ground, suffering from a gunshot wound to his right armpit. They said Moss was unconscious when they arrived.

Moss was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center, where he later died, police said.

Police said 37-year-old Keith Letmon is wanted in connection with Moss's death. They said warrants charging Letmon with murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and possession of a weapon by a person convicted of a violent felony have been issued.

Monday afternoon members of the city's SWAT team were sent to the Kensington Manor apartments after receiving a tip that Letmon was there. Officers shutdown Kensington Drive for nearly an hour as officers called for Letmon to come out of an apartment where he was thought to be staying. It was eventually determined that Letmon was not at the apartment complex. Outside the apartment complex Captain Art Littlejohn with Spartanburg Public Safety said Letmon is considered armed and dangerous. "We have one person who is deceased and we know he (Letmon) has a weapon. That is the information that we have. So we wanted come here and bring everything we needed to have to be safe," said Littlejohn of the massive police presence at the apartment complex. 

Anyone with information on Letmon's whereabouts was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
