GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - Greenville County deputies are investigating after they say a man was  shot and killed in Greenville Thursday.

Deputies say they responded to the scene on Congress Street around 9 p.m. They say the victim was found deceased by responding deputies.

Dispatchers tell FOX Carolina they received reports of a robbery and shooting from that area.

Deputies on scene later told FOX Carolina the man was shot inside his home and another man, identified as a witness, was with him. That witness has been taken in to be interviewed, and we're told he is not a suspect.

As of writing, there is no suspect and the investigation is in the early stages. Deputies also say they are unsure if there is an immediate danger to the community.

On Friday, the coroner identified the deceased as Anthony Tyrone Scott, 42. The coroner said Scott was attacked and killed in his home just after 9 p.m.

GCSO is  asking neighbors to call if they see anything abnormal as the investigation is ongoing.
