GENERIC: police, crime scene tape

SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) An investigation is underway after the Spartanburg County Coroner said a man died from a gunshot wound early Saturday morning. 

Deputies responded to the scene at Promenade Apartments in Boiling Springs just after 11:20 p.m. and found the victim inside the apartment with a gunshot wound. The victim was unable to provide any information in regard to the shooting.

He was transported to the hospital, where he later passed away just after midnight. 

The coroner identified him as 32-year-old Juan Booker of Dornoch Drive.

Juan's family provided us with this statement:

“Juan was truly a stand up guy; such a humble, kind, and respectful young man raised by a loving Christian family. He would give the shirt off of his back to those he didn’t even know and always was one who promoted peace & harmony. He was such a GREAT father, an AMAZING uncle, a LOYAL brother, an OUTSTANDING son, a FAITHFUL friend, & a hometown HERO! His smile and humble spirit will truly & greatly be missed! A loss that will never be forgotten! Long Live Juan Booker(LB)! Much love to all of his family and friends! ❤️“

Details surrounding his death are limited at this time. Deputies say that evidence suggests that the victim was shot outside the apartment in the stairwell. 

Both the Coroner's Office and Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office are currently investigating.
