Deputies said they found a teenager alive nearly 17 hours after he had been shot by a Greenwood High School student.

The teenager was found about 7 a.m. Sunday morning by fishermen at a pond near Willard Road, according to a deputy's report. Deputies said the teen was found lying mostly in the water.

The report said the man called 911 after he saw the teen lying there and when paramedics arrived, they had to use a medical helicopter to fly him to a nearby hospital.

The teen told deputies that Marcellus Autrey Jr., 17, of Greenwood, a Greenwood High School 11th grade student, shot him about 2 p.m. on Saturday. The report said he had been shot multiple times, including in the middle of the chest and behind his left ear.

Deputies said they found playing cards and a $10 bill lying on the ground near where the teen was found. 

Investigators said the victim and Autrey had been playing cards near the pond when they got into an argument about a robbery a month ago and then Autrey shot the teenager.

Deputies said they arrested Autrey and charged him with attempted murder.
