Deputies: Suspect in fatal Friday night shooting in Gaffney charged with murder
Posted on May 4, 2019





GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) - A Friday evening shooting in Gaffney has turned fatal after the Cherokee County coroner confirmed early Saturday morning that the victim passed away.

Cherokee County deputies said they were dispatched around 9:06 p.m. to Coach Hill Drive in Gaffney in response to a 'shooting with injuries' call.

Upon arrival, Sheriff Steve Mueller said deputies found a 27-year-old man lying in the road, suffering from possibly life-threatening injuries.

Coroner Dennis Fowler later said that the victim, identified as Jerry Lee Scalf, passed away on the scene. Fowler's report says Scalf was standing in the roadway when another person approached him and began shooting. Scalf was struck by gunfire and collapsed, per the report.

Mueller says witnesses gave his deputies detailed descriptions of a person of interest in the case, and were able to quickly find the man.

Saturday afternoon, Mueller released the identity of the suspect - who was taken into custody after a brief foot chase.

22-year-old Diante Jeramaine Willis has been charged with one count of murder. Investigators will be seeking additional charges against Willis as the investigation continues.

Mueller notes the Willis and Scalf have negative history and have gotten into verbal altercations before.
