Murder suspect taken into custody in Newberry


The Newberry County Sheriff's Office has apprehended Jonathan Dominick following a fatal shooting that occurred this past weekend.

Dominick, 29, was arrested and charged with murder upon his release from a local hospital.

The arrest, according to authorities, stems from a shooting that occurred early Sunday morning on Rikard School Road in Prosperity. Deputies arrived to find the road completely blocked. Moments later, shots were fired and a crowd estimated to be over 100 people began running from the scene.

Investigators believe the shooting was related to an ongoing dispute between Dominick and the victim.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting as well as the actions of those who may have been involved.
