Death investigation on E. Arlington Avenue in Greer

GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) - Greer police have made an arrest in the fatal shooting, that happened Halloween night at a laundromat, and unfortunately claimed the life of a father of two.

According to coroner Rusty Clevenger, the Spartanburg County Coroner's Office was summoned to the scene on E. Arlington Avenue around 6:40 pm.

When the coroner's office arrived at 7:08 p.m. the victim, 39-year-old Adam Vazquez of Glen Aire Drive in Greer, was pronounced dead on scene. 

Vazquez' family said he used to be a chef at Sonny's Grill and leaves behind two children ages 7 and 14.

On December 6, police announced they had made an arrest in the homicide investigation. Greer Police arrested Kevin Choice (also known as Calvin Choice) on December 5, on unrelated charges in Greenville County. 

He was then placed in custody of Greer Police. Choice has been charged with murder, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. 

Since then, Choice was arraigned and was transferred to the Spartanburg County Detention Center. The judge who arraigned him set no bond, meaning Choice will have to appear in a circuit court to potentially receive a bond.
