GREER, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A man arrested following an altercation that turned into a shooting in Greenville County remains in jail after a judge denied bond.

Deputies responded to a house on Jordan Road just before 10 p.m. on Wednesday, August 17.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived on scene and discovered an altercation had occurred and one person was shot.

On Thursday, deputies arrested 32-year-old Jorian Leerell Williams in with three counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Deputies said Williams went to the house of a former partner, got into an altercation, made verbal threats and then left.

He returned thirty minutes later and fired at least two shots at the occupants standing outside before one of the occupants returned fire, hitting Williams in the leg, deputies said.

Williams then fled to an unknown location in Spartanburg County where he was later arrested by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies took Williams to the hospital for treatment after determining he was shot in self-defense.

Williams is set to appear in circuit court at a later date.
