ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - An Anderson County sheriff's deputy has shot and killed a man after a domestic dispute.
    
Sheriff John Skipper says officers were called around 8 p.m. Monday and a woman told them the dispute involved a man in the house. The sheriff said at least five people were in the home.
    
Skipper said one deputy entered the home while other was talking with the woman. Skipper said a man was holding something and refused the deputy's instruction to drop it.
    
They became involved in a scuffle. The sheriff said the officer's Taser fell to the ground and the man grabbed it and pointed it at the deputy, who then fired his gun.
    
Twenty-four-year-old Andrew Aldrich of Anderson was shot to death.
    
The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.
