The Greenville County Sheriff's Office said a man has been arrested in connection with a shooting on March 11.
The shooting occurred on Lee Road in Taylors at approximately 1:00 a.m., deputies said.
According to the sheriff's office, deputies found a female victim suffering from at least one gunshot wound at the scene. Rachel Cantrell said her children were in the next room when deputies said their father opened fire.
Deputies said 43-year-old Marcus Sexton was arrested and charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime, and attempted murder. Sexton remains in custody at the Greenville County Detention Center.
"They told me at the hospital...they said you're lucky to be alive and I said, 'No, I'm blessed because of the Good Lord above,'" said Cantrell.
Cantrell said the argument stemmed from Sexton seeing a text message on her phone. She said before she could even talk to him about the situation, he headed to the bathroom and retrieved a gun that she would come face to face with.
"He was waving it in my face. I stood up and said, 'Please don't shoot me,'" Cantrell recalled. "He was standing right beside me, and that's when he shot me."
Cantrell will have more surgeries down the road and created a Go Fund Me page - an account she hopes is an open window to a new life and a new space to recover and rebuild.
"I should be in a grave right now, but I'm not, I'm a walking testimony," Cantrell said.
