SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A murder suspect in a shooting that claimed two lives outside a Spartanburg grocery store is now behind bars in Spartanburg County after being arrested in Maryland on August 21.

Online jail records show Gettis Chambers was booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center on murder and weapons charges Sunday night. He is currently being held without bond.
