SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina)- A man died after being shot near Ebel Ct. in the early hours of Sunday morning, according to a release from the Spartanburg County Coroner's Office.

"I heard something go pop pop pop just like that.  Normally around here you might hear something like that maybe once out of a month or a week or whatever, so I ain't suspect nothing.  So then I laid back down and when I got back up in the morning that's when I saw all the officers and stuff out there," said one neighbor, who did not want to be identified.

The victim was identified by the coroner as 39-year-old Corey Satrell Jackson of Spartanburg.

Willis has known Jackson for years and lived a few houses away from him for the past few years.

"My heart's insanity right now, for it to happen on our street is really a shock.  All my life I've been living on this street, ain't really nothing like this ever happened in our neighborhood like this," he said.

Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene, the coroner confirms.

"He was a good father, he loved his people.  He loved his mother, him and his mother had a beautiful relationship.  He was a nice kind person, he'd speak to you when he see you.  You know he knew a lot of people," added Willis.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office says that the investigation into this incident is in its early stages. 

Spartanburg County deputies are investigating after a shooting in Spartanburg County on Ebel Court Sunday morning.
