Deputies arrested a Greenville man after they said he punched and fought his neighbor, killing him.

Lt. Tim Ridgeway of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said the two people were fighting, punching and rolling around on the ground outside of a home on Wilbanks Street Tuesday night.

Ridgeway said after the fight, one man walked away as another neighbor came over, saw something was wrong and called 911.

Deputy Drew Pinciaro said when officers arrived, they found the victim, who is in his 50s, lying unresponsive. Paramedics took him to the hospital, but he died by the time he got to the emergency room, Ridgeway said.

Deputies said they detained Andrew Hagler, 23, at the scene and then charged him with murder.

According to his arrest warrant, Hagler punched the victim three to four times in the head. Deputies said in Hagler's warrant that the victim died as a result of the fight.

The coroner has not yet released the victim's name.
