COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Richland County sheriff’s deputies say a 31-year-old man has turned himself in after shooting his girlfriend to death.

Investigators said Percy Williams was charged with murder after the 35-year-old woman died around 6 a.m. Monday at a home they shared in Columbia.

Authorities say the shooting happened after a domestic dispute but released few other details.

Deputies say Williams left the home after the shooting and called a friend for a ride. Investigators say the friend convinced him to turn himself in to deputies.

Williams is charged with murder. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.

The name of the victim has not been released.
