COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) — The Colleton County Sheriff’s Office arrested the person who they say is responsible for a shooting in Walterboro.

Marcus Ray Goins was wanted on warrants for Attempted Murder, Possession of a Weapon during the Commission of a Violent Crime, Unlawful Carrying of a Firearm, and Receiving Stolen Goods (Possession of a Stolen Vehicle). He was arrested on Monday, May 22 in Cottageville.

Authorities say he and Christopher Rayshawn Brown were wanted in connection with a shooting that took place at the Orange Store in Walterboro on Friday, May 12.

On May 22, Christopher Rayshawn Brown, the other suspect wanted in reference to the same shooting in Walterboro, turned himself into authorities at Colleton County Sheriff’s Office.

Brown faces charges of Attempted Murder, Possession of a Weapon during the Commission of a Violent Crime, and Unlawful Carrying of a Firearm.
