Deputies in Anderson County said no charges have been filed following a shooting that claimed one person's life and sent another to the hospital.

Sgt. Jonathan Brown said the shooting happened in the driveway of a vacant home on Belton Street on Saturday afternoon during an attempted armed robbery.

Brown said the victim shot the suspect and another individual at the scene.

The Anderson County Coroner's Office said Herman Leon Scott, 33, of Anderson, was found dead at the scene. Deputy coroner Josh Shore said Scott died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Shore said the second person who was shot was taken to the hospital in fair condition.

On Monday, deputies said the shooting was still under investigation but that no charges were pending against the attempted robbery victim or the surviving shooting victim.

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call the sheriff's office at 864-260-4400.
