Orangeburg man charged with murder after dispute led to shooting
ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - An Orangeburg man is facing charges after a confrontation led to a deadly shooting this past weekend.
Robert Jamison, III, 40, was taken into custody on Saturday after he admitted to firing a rifle at a 40-year-old Orangeburg man during a dispute, according to the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident reportedly occurred in a roadway near 383 Jamison Avenue in Orangeburg.
The victim was transported to the Regional Medical Center where he later died of his wounds.
During a court appearance on Tuesday, Jamison was formally charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
“I’ve said it countless times there is no justification for this,” Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “This is just a senseless act with no concern for life.”
Jamison’s next court appearance is scheduled for General Sessions on Dec. 13.
