FORT MILL, S.C. — A man has been arrested in the shooting death of a woman in a store near the South Carolina-North Carolina state line.

York County officials say 19-year-old Karson Bailey Whitesell was found dead Tuesday afternoon in The Peach Stand in Fort Mill.

Fort Mill Police Maj. Bryan Zachary said Whitesell died at the scene.

Officers are preparing charges against a Lancaster man who was arrested at the scene.

Police say other employees and customers were in the store at the time of the shooting, but no one else was hurt.

Police have not released a motive in the shooting. But Zachary said it was not the result of a domestic situation or a robbery.
