According to the station, Irvin and Jones got into a verbal dispute at the House of Raeford chicken plant in Columbia, where they both worked.

After their shift finished about 6:30 a.m., the two continued their fight at a nearby gas station.

Detectives with the West Columbia Police Department obtained surveillance video footage that allegedly shows Irvin flash a gun at Jones multiple times and Irvin respond by punching Jones.

Bystanders then separated the two, but Irvin began to taunt Jones, challenging him to hit him. When Jones again began to fight, Irvin pulled out his gun and shot the victim 15 times, killing him.

A judge sentenced Irvin to 45 years in prison without the chance of parole, according to WOLO.
