RIDGELAND, SC (WTOC) - Sheriff deputies in Jasper County are still investigating a shooting death in the Lowcountry.

It happened off Missy's Lounge, off of Rice Shire Road just outside of Ridgeland, South Carolina.

Authorities say fifty four year old Woodrow Brantley and twenty one year old Brett Howard got into an argument outside of a pool hall.

That's when authorities believe that the suspect Howard shot Brantley.

Brantley died at the scene.

Brett Howard was arrested shortly thereafter.

The investigation is ongoing and we will have the latest as new information becomes available.
