A Fatal Shooting Saturday Evening in Cross Hill was in self defense, and the Shooter will not face any charges, according to the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to Longview Road in Cross Hill  around 7pm Saturday in reference to an individual with a gunshot wound. After an extensive investigation, deputies determined that an altercation between two individuals occurred. A person residing at the incident location was assaulted and felt threatened, which resulted in him defending himself against Deandre Martavious Bowers of Cross Hill. Bowers was shot and pronounced deceased on scene. “After consulting with the Solicitor’s Office and taking into consideration the individual’s right to defend himself, no charges will follow at this time,” the release said.
