SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Police said they are offering a cash reward after a man was shot to death in the front yard of a Spartanburg home Tuesday morning.

Capt. Art Littlejohn with Spartanburg police said they were called to a home about 9:15 a.m. Baltimore Street where Stanley "Man" Jones was shot.

Littlejohn said the first 911 call reported an altercation in the front yard and then later learned that shots were fired from a car.

He said at least one shot was fired from a car, hitting Jones who was in the front yard.

Littlejohn said they were told the shooter was in the backseat of a four-door white Buick LeSabre with heavily tinted windows. He said there was one other person in the car - the driver.

Police said the car was last seen headed towards West Main Street.

During a live interview on foxcarolina.com, Littlejohn said they are actively speaking with neighbors and potential witnesses to determine what may have led up to the shooting. He said they believe the victim and shooter were at least acquaintances.

FOX Carolina spoke with the next-door neighbor who said they heard one loud gunshot about 9 a.m. and went outside where they found one man trying to help his brother who had been shot in the chest.

Police said a reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for the arrest of people involved in the killing of Jones. They are still working on leads in the case but have yet to release any information about a potential suspect.

Police ask anyone with information on the shooting or anything that may have been going on in the area in recent days to call the criminal investigator at 864-592-2065 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
