A family argument has resulted in a father fatally shooting his son at their Gaston home late Tuesday afternoon.

“Based on our investigation, this was an argument between family members that escalated into a confrontation and ended with a fatal shot,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Our detectives made an arrest near the home where the shooting happened shortly after the incident.”

Heirberone Heava Foster, 54, is charged with murder for fatally shooting his son with a shotgun in the driveway of their home on Oak Glenn Road, according to arrest warrants.

Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified the victim as 24-year-old Heirbrane Will Foster.

Koon said Foster is also charged with the possession of a firearm during a violent crime and illegally possessing a firearm after being convicted of a violent felony.

Foster is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a bond hearing.

“The investigation into this case is still open,” Koon said. “We encourage anyone with information to share it with us.”
