Arrest Made in Fatal Newberry Party Shooting

Newberry County, SC (WLTX) - Newberry County deputies have arrested a man in connection with a fatal shooting at a party last weekend.

Officers announced Tuesday they're charging 29-year-old Jonathan Sentel Dominick with murder.

Early Sunday morning, deputies responded to a call of traffic congestion at a block party on Rikard School Road in Prosperity. As officers were attempting to get to the party itself, they heard shots fired, and reported seeing people running from the scene.

Officers say they found two people with gunshot wounds: Dominick and the victim, 19-year-old Monteco Devante Houston.

Houston died from his injuries, while Dominick was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Deputies developed information that led them to charge Dominick with Houston's death, saying they believe the two had an ongoing dispute.

Officers, though, say they're not sure yet who shot Dominick, but they don't believe it was the victim.

The investigation into the incident continues.
