SUMTER, SC (WIS) - Police have a man in custody after a New Year's Eve homicide outside a Sumter convenience store.

Major Alvin Holston with the Sumter Police Department said Rashod Markea Wright turned himself in Sunday after tips led investigators to question his family.

The charges stem from a shooting that happened outside "The Yellow Store" on West Liberty Street December 31. 32-year-old Anthony Daniels was found in the rear parking lot shot in the upper body. Daniels was taken to Tuomey Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Holston said it is still not clear what the motive was behind the shooting. Wright has been charged with murder and is being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.
