His son, Delvin, died of a single gunshot wound to the head, according to the coroner. Coroner Randy Bogan also said he suffered gunshot wounds to his body.
The shooting happened after campus police officers were called to investigate a report of a car break-in, according to investigators from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators said Simmons attempted to leave the scene in a car and when two officers approached him, he struck one of the officers with the car. The officer shot and killed Simmons, authorities said.
