RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A man is dead after being shot multiple times Thursday afternoon in Lower Richland County.

According to a spokesperson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department, the shooting happened near 3721 Baywater Dr. around 12:30 p.m.

The victim's mother identified the man shot as Aubrey Bernard Anderson. He was shot multiple times in the upper body and died at the scene.

The mother says the shooting stems from a disagreement Anderson was having with a man -- the shooter -- who lives across the street.

The sheriff's department says they were called out to Anderson's neighborhood over the weekend and this morning prior to the shooting.  Both calls were in regards to this feud.

At some point after deputies left this morning, that neighbor shot Anderson.

Anderson's mother says he was a jokester who helped support his family.

The sheriff's department is investigating they say they're still trying to figure our what charges, if any, will be brought against the shooter.
