BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office has arrested one of the four subjects involved in Thursday night’s shooting incident in the Burton Wells Area.

Glenn Ricky Major Jr., 23, was taken into custody without incident on the authority of the three arrest warrants, as well as three bench warrants issued by the City of Beaufort Municipal Court for unrelated incidents.  

Major Jr. is charged for Possession of a Weapon in the Commission of a Violent Crime and two counts of Attempted Murder. 

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office said it happened in the area of Burton Wells around 8:30 p.m.

The two male victims reported a confrontation occurred with three people, when one of them fired a weapon several times.

The suspects fled and the victims drove themselves to the hospital for treatment.

From statements gathered by the BCSO, it appears the two victims were leaving Burton Wells Park when they observed four black male subjects in a gray mid-size sedan. They allegedly exited their vehicle and were fired upon by the subjects in the gray sedan.

Investigators located over 25 shell casings of several different caliber ammunition in the area of Burton Wells and Pine Grove Road.

The motive and identities of the three other black male subjects are still under investigation.

One victim is still being treated, while the other has been treated and released.
