GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenwood police said a man died after he was shot to death Sunday morning.

The Greenwood County coroner's office said Dantavius Christian, 23, died from his injuries several hours after the shooting happened at Oak Hill Condos at 1:49 a.m.

The coroner said Christian was shot in the head and died at Self Regional Hospital. An autopsy will be performed Monday in Anderson.

Neighbors said Christian was well-liked and a good man.

"He was a cool fella, he hung with everybody in the neighborhood," said Shamus Brown. "He'd look out for you and help you with anything."

Some said the news of his death is hard to take in.

"It broke me down, it tore me apart," said Mont Carter. "I couldn't believe it, I still don't believe it."

Police said at this time they don't have a person of interest and are looking for information from the public. However, some in the neighborhood said this should be an open and shut case.

"They know who did it, everybody knows who did it," said Tasahon Diarapp.

Diarapp said that once again the police are turning a blind eye to what goes on in the Greenwood neighborhood.

"We have so many unsolved murders around here, it just don't make sense," said Diarapp.

Police told FOX Carolina at this time they don't have a motive for the homicide. However, neighbors claim it was a robbery gone bad.

"You can always get money, clothes, shoes and a car but you cannot get a life back,"
 said Diarapp. "It's not worth taking someone's life."

Greenwood police are still investigating this case and they ask anyone with information about what happened to come forward.
