January 15, 2018

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina coroner confirms that a man killed at a private gun range died from a gunshot wound.

York County Coroner Sabrina Gast on Monday identified the victim as 59-year-old Robert Paris of Rock Hill. Gast said Paris was declared dead when rescuers arrived at the Sportsman gun range in Rock Hill.

The company’s web site says it operates an indoor shooting range for pistols only since its maximum shooting distance is just 25 yards.

The coroner says autopsy and toxicology results are pending.
