Authorities say a 28-year-old South Carolina man has been shot by a neighbor after a rampage that included the stabbing death of his girlfriend.
Greenville County sheriff's deputies say Zacharia Pearson took a large knife from the kitchen after he got into a fight with his 24-year-old girlfriend early Monday at a home in Piedmont and stabbed her until the knife broke. Her name has not been released.
Investigators say Pearson then punched and headbutted two other people in the home before leaving.
Authorities say a neighbor came out to see what was happening and Pearson charged him with a pipe.
Deputies say the man shot Pearson twice with a concealed weapon he had a permit to carry.
