An Orangeburg man has been charged in the June 30 shooting that left one man dead.
Damion Mayers, 32, has been charged with murder, armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
“There was apparently some type of disagreement that ended in this fatal shooting,” Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “However, no disagreement ever warrants taking another person’s life.”
The Wolfe Trail man was formally presented his rights during a hearing on Friday.
Orangeburg County Magistrate Stephanie McKune-Grant informed Mayers he will be able to apply for a bond at a later date before a circuit court judge.

Ravenell said Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators were called to a Baugh Street residence after a 911 caller reported a shooting.
Investigators arrived to find 26-year-old Harold Langley on the ground suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
Langley was transported to the Regional Medical Center where he died the following day.
Witnesses said Mayers was in the company of several people when he exited the Baugh Street residence. He then returned moments later with a firearm, witnesses said.
Mayers was taken into custody on Thursday in Calhoun County by OCSO deputies and Calhoun County Sheriff’s deputies.
