EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

 The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office said deputies said a man was fatally shot after reportedly entering an Easley home with a gun Tuesday night.

Deputies said they received word of a shooting at a home on Walker Street around 9 p.m.

Deputies said they arrived to  find a man suffering from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds.

The man was taken to the hospital and later died in surgery. He was identified as 39-year-old Henry Hugh Thomas of Greenville.

Deputies said people at the home said the man did not live there. He reportedly entered the residence uninvited and was armed with a gun. A confrontation ensued and multiple shots were fired by someone in the house and the deceased, deputies said.

Deputies said two guns and spent shell casings were recovered from the house.

No one else was hurt.

On Thursday, deputies said an autopsy confirmed Thomas died after multiple shots from a 9 mm caliber weapon, which matched one of the guns found at the scene.

Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said the gun used in the fatal shooting was recovered from a bedroom in the home.

Hashe said no arrests have been made at this time.

"Sheriff’s detectives have interviewed all parties and are continuing to investigate the circumstances of any event that may have occurred prior to the shooting.," he said.

Hashe said deputies will continue to investigate and then present their findings to the solicitor's office to determine if any charges will be filed.

In the meantime, Hashe asks anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC
