GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Greenville County deputies said that the man who fled after being wounded in a shooting, prompting a lockdown at a nearby school, was arrested Tuesday night.
The shooting happened about 2:15 p.m. at 1 Willis Ave.
Deputies said a friend of the people who live at the home stopped by and asked for some change. They said when a man at the home pulled out some money, the friend grabbed it and a struggle ensued. They said that during the struggle, the friend pulled out a gun, firing a shot and wounding a woman in the home in the hand. They said that the struggle continued between the man and the friend and the gun fired a second time, wounding the friend. They said the friend then fled the scene in a vehicle.
In response to the shooting, deputies advised officials at nearby Alexander Elementary School to lock down as they searched for the gunman. Officials with Greenville County Schools said the person who fled the scene was last seen in the parking lot of the school.
Officials with Greenville County Schools said the lockdown was lifted just after 3 p.m. and that students were supervised by deputies as they were released from school.
Lt. Tim Ridgeway, of the sheriff's office, said the man who fled was identified as Joseph Anthony. He was located in the 3000 block of Old Buncombe Road in Sans Souci just after 8 p.m. He said Anthony was suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach and was taken to Greenville Memorial for treatment.
