ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - Authorities have arrested a man suspected of killing his 14-year-old son and wounding his wife, according to the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said 46-year-old Andre Greene has been charged with one count each of murder, attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Greene is expected to make his first court appearance Wednesday.

The sheriff said investigators were called to a Kemmerlin Road residence just before 6 p.m. Monday to investigate the shooting.

Investigators arrived to find Greene’s son, Drequan Greene, dead and his 40-year-old wife suffering a gunshot wound, WIS reported.

Greene faces a minimum of 30 years if convicted of murder alone.

“There is absolutely no reason in this world for this to have happened,” Ravenell said. “We don’t have a solid motive as of yet, but nothing justifies this. Nothing.”
