SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The third suspect wanted in connection with a shooting in the parking lot of a Spartanburg fast food restaurant last month turned himself in to authorities Friday.

The shooting happened at 2:13 p.m. Feb. 27, in the parking lot of the Taco Bell restaurant at the intersection of Warren H. Abernathy Highway and Franklin Avenue.

Lt. Tony Ivey, of the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office, said someone inside the restaurant called for help after the shooting. He said arriving deputies found a man in a silver car in the parking lot, suffering from a gunshot wound.

The day after the shooting deputies said they arrested 19-year-old Tevin Thomas and 27-year-old Reginald Sanders in connection with the shooting. They said warrants for the arrest of 24-year-old Robert Moore were issued the same day.

On Friday, Ivey said that Moore, accompanied by his attorney, turned himself in to deputies.

Ivey said eyewitnesses and evidence at the scene helped develop the three men as suspects in the case. He said it appears a dispute over drugs may have been the motive for the shooting.

According to arrest warrants, Thomas and Moore were responsible for the shooting, while Sanders tried to help Thomas avoid the consequences of the crime.
