WINNSBORO — One man is dead after a shooting at Autumn Ridge Apartments on Beech St. in Winnsboro.

Winnsboro Police say the man, Danny Harvey, was involved in a domestic dispute with his former girlfriend.

Police say, Harvey went to his former girlfriend's apartment around 9:00 p.m. and fired three shots through the closed door as she approached. One of the shots hit her leg.

Harvey then kicked in the door, and chaed the woman to into a closet, where he threatened her with the gun.

Harvey finally told his estranged girlfriend, "Don't worry. I won't shoot you". He then turned the gun on himself and fired a shot into his chest.

When emergency personnel arrived, Harvey was transported to a local hospital, where he later died.

The woman was also taken to the hospital for her injuries, but has since been released.
