State police say a white man has been arrested in the shooting death of a black man whose body was then dragged several miles down a road in central South Carolina.

State law enforcement say Anthony Hill's body was found Wednesday, and the killing is being investigated as a possible hate crime.

Investigators don't have a motive, but say the FBI is helping the investigation.

Newberry County sheriff's deputies say they followed a trail of blood to the mobile home of Gregory Collins.

Collins refused to come out and officers used tear gas to force him out.

Lloyd says Collins has been charged with murder.
