GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Four people have been arrested in connection with a shooting that led a 21-year-old dead on June 25, according to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office said a call about a shooting came in around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Investigators said that when deputies arrived, they found a man who had been shot at least once lying dead near a cul-de-sac. The Coroner’s Office later identified the victim as 21-year-old Huber Lopez of Troutman, NC.

As investigators combed the scene, deputies blocked anyone from entering W. 8th Street starting at the intersection with Woodside Avenue. For hours, some residents were not allowed to return to their homes.

“It’s very stressful,” Christine McCaffrey told FOX Carolina. “I just hope they solve this crime and get to the bottom of it.”

On June 28, the Sheriff’s Office said one male juvenile was charged with murder and following arrest, was taken to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Columbia. Two other male juveniles were charged with accessory/accessory after the fact and were also taken to D.J.J. in Columbia. The fourth juvenile was charged with accessory/accessory after the fact and is currently in the Greenville County Detention Center.

No charging documents or photos are provided due to the suspects being juveniles.
