Police said they have made two arrests in the fatal shooting of a Fountain Inn man.

Fountain Inn police Chief Keith Morton said both suspects are charged after Barry Norman, 25, was killed late Tuesday night.

Morton said Norman and the suspects had been involved in a fight earlier in the day and had sent threatening text messages back and forth. He said they were able to use those text messages, along with information on Facebook and tons of surveillance video from the vicinity of the shooting, to identify the suspects.

He said Norman had also been beaten up and the back windows of his car had been broken out. Morton said the fight may have started over a girl.

Police said witnesses reported hearing several gunshots and seeing two people run away from the corner of Third Street and Woodside Avenue Tuesday when Norman was shot.

The surrounding region was shut down as police, deputies and search dogs saturated the area to look for the suspects, blocking off roads to set up a perimeter in the manhunt.

Shawndell Clemson, 22, was wanted after the incident and was charged on Oct. 10, according to the sheriff's office.

Morton said when they reviewed surveillance video, they were able to find the gun connected to the shooting.

According to his warrants, Clemons and Jacoby Gregory, 25, were charged with murder and possession of a gun during a violent crime.
