The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a shooting that occurred on Stonewall Farm Rd in Easley at approximately 7:45pm Saturday night. Deputies arrived on the scene just before 8:00pm following reports that a person had been shot one time in the lower arm.

The initial investigation revealed that a homeowner (male 38yoa) answered a knock at his front door and engaged in a conversation with an unknown male described as having red hair, approximately 6’ tall with thin build, wearing a dark colored shirt and blue jeans.

The unidentified male asked to speak with a former tenant of the location but the current homeowner advised the subject that the person that he was looking for had not lived at the location in over a year.

The unknown male became angry and produced a small caliber handgun at which time he fired one round that struck the homeowner in the lower arm. The suspect was last seen walking away from the scene on foot.  The victim was treated and released from a local hospital.

The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information concerning this incident to please call the Sheriff’s Office at (864) 898-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.
