Greenville County deputies said the man wanted in the shooting death of a bar owner was arrested after the SWAT team surrounded a home Friday morning.

Deputies said tips led them to believe William McKinney, 33, was inside the Callaway Court home so the SWAT team was called in to assist with an arrest warrant.

FOX Carolina crews at the scene said the team had a mobile home on Callaway Court surrounded and a window had been blown out.

After a short time man dressed all in black came out with his hands up along with a woman, according to FOX Carolina crews at the scene.

Deputies said they were both taken into custody. McKinney was wanted in connection with the Aug. 6 shooting death of 38-year-old Raheem Robinson outside of Robinson's bar Bobby T's on White Horse Road.

Deputies said the community and media's involvement in getting the word out about McKinney led to his arrest.

Deputies have not yet released further information about the short standoff or who the woman was. Officials were still processing the scene about 12 p.m. Friday.

Callaway Court is located off of Centre Blvd near Augusta Road and the Donaldson Center.
