SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A man has been arrested after police say he shot and killed a man at a Spartanburg grocery store.
Gettis Andre Chambers was captured in Maryland City, Maryland just before 8:00 p.m. Monday, police say.
Chambers is being charged in connection with the death of Tyshann Rashad Smith.
Smith was killed on August 7th in the parking lot of Biggerstaff Grocery on Farley Avenue.
Smith was found fatally shot in the driver’s seat of a car, the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office says.
