Walterboro man shot to death over crack cocaine

WALTERBOR, S.C. - A Walterboro man collapsed in the middle of S.C. 15 after he was shot during an argument over the price of crack cocaine, Colleton County deputies said.

James A. Thompson, Jr., 27, died from a gunshot wound to his chest, Coroner Richard Harvey said.

Deputies arrested Melvin L. Daniels, 31, of Walterboro, and charged him with murder, according to Colleton County Sheriffs Chief Deputy Ted Stanfield.

The shooting happened about 2 a.m. Friday, Stanfield said.

A woman who was with Thompson told investigators they were planning to buy crack from Daniels when they got into an argument and Daniels started firing a 9mm, deputies said.

Thompson and the woman ran into the street, where Thompson collapsed from the gunshot wounds. Information from: The Post and Courier.
