LEXINGTON, SC (WLTX) -- Lexington County deputies have arrested one man in connection with a fatal shooting on March Road Monday.

He's 20-year-old Joshua Cody Young.

The Lexington Sheriff's Department said Young broke into 19-year-old Shane Brooks' home yesterday afternoon just before 4:00 PM.  We're told the two got into a fight, at which point Young fired his gun, hitting Brooks in the leg.

The Lexington County coroner says Brooks died at the hospital from blood loss. 

Young turned himself in to investigators Tuesday.  Deputies said the victim and suspect knew each other and this doesn't appear to be a random act.
