ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) – Police in Anderson have charged an 18-year-old man with murder following the shooting death of another teen Thursday afternoon. 

Anderson County emergency dispatchers said the shooting was reported along the 100 block of Farmer Street around 4:45 p.m.

Police say when EMS and officers arrived on scene, one person was dead and a second victim had to be transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Anderson County coroner Greg Shore identified the deceased teen as 17-year-old Christopher Dillon Patterson of Anderson. Shore said the shooting happened at Patterson's house during a confrontation, and has thus labeled Patterson's death as a homicide.

According to police, 18-year-old Christian James Elijah Kemp was identified as the suspect following an investigation and charged with murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and assault and battery second degree. 

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday morning.

Kemp appeared in court for a bond hearing Friday afternoon and was denied bond.
