SUNSET, S.C. — Authorities say an argument led to a shooting that resulted in one man’s death and the arrest of another in Pickens County.

The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office says that 26-year-old Justin Douglas O’ Bryant has been charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

He is charged in the shooting death early Saturday of 38-year-old Michael Shane Collins. Authorities say the two were arguing at a home in the Sunset community at the time.

O’Bryant was arrested in Central, about 25 miles away, about five hours after the shooting that occurred about 2:40 a.m. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
