LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) — A Lancaster man has been charged with shooting his 17-year-old girlfriend to death.

Sheriff Barry Faile said Tuesday that 18-year-old Tanner Crolley had been arrested and charged with murder.

Authorities responded to reports of a shooting at a home at around 10 p.m. Monday and found Sierra Landry lying in the yard. She was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.

Investigators say they found Crolley several hours later nearby and arrested him. Authorities say the couple had been arguing outside the home when Crolley shot Landry.

Crolley was jailed Tuesday awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney.
