The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 23-year-old Raymond Groves of Anderson in connection with the shooting death of James Wells in October of 2005. The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Bamboo Garden Restaurant on the Highway 28 Bypass.
Regina Wells, the victim’s daughter, spoke for the family at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
I was a Daddy’s girl. And it’s hard thinking that the one person you think nothing would ever happen to, and it happens. It’s the most horrible thing that I hope no one ever has to experience.
Groves is being held in the Anderson County Detention Center. Sheriff John Skipper:
We developed some information a month ago. As a result we got a warrant on Raymond Groves. He has been charged with murder. He also has another drug case outstanding.
Skipper said the case is still an ongoing investigation which could lead to more suspects.
