SPARTANBURG Co., S.C. (WSPA) – Two people have been charged in connection to the fatal shooting of a Byrnes High School student.
Antonio “Tony” Panuamba, 17, was shot on Larkin Park Drive on Friday.
Tony was a senior at Byrnes High School and would have graduated later this month.
Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright announced Tuesday that two men arrested are Travis Emil Jones Jr., 19, of Israel Drive in Wellford, and Marcos Hidalgo Orduna, 18, of Foxhall Road in Spartanburg.
Jones has been charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. He was denied bond.
Orduna has been charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Deputies say both sides met at a location to try to resolve an issue, but it failed when guns were brought out and shots were fired.
They say the incident doesn’t need to be confused with incidents of fight clubs they are investigating.
Donald Ethridge was one of Tony’s friends. He says it’s hard to believe he’s gone.
“He was just such a good guy. He had a lot of friends. Nobody really expected this to happen. He didn’t get to see 18 years old and that’s what’s really bad about the world,” Ethridge said.
