Deputies have arrested four people, after a high speed chase, and expect to arrest more in connection with what investigators described as a gang-related Hartsville shooting Wednesday afternoon.

Darlington County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday at a Mimosa Drive residence.

When deputies arrived they found the area littered with shotgun shells and two men shot, according to release issued by the sheriff’s office.

The victims, both Hartsville men, are expected to recover, according to the release.

Arrested, according to the release, and charged with one count each of attempted murder, were:

  • Andre Bertrand, 26, 3927 E. Old Camden Road Hartsville
  • Leonardo Jones, 25, 2218 Ousleydale Road Hartsville
  • Kevin Ford, 25, 2216 Ousleydale Road Hartsville
  • Richard Admill, 32, 816 Dovesville Highway Darlington

Deputies responding to the scene were told to look out for four black males in a black vehicle and, when they tried to make a traffic stop on it, a high speed chase ensued.

Deputies forced the car off the road at the intersection of Floyd’s Road and Everlasting Branch and immediately arrested one of the four. The other three were arrested following a brief manhunt, according to the release.

 “This was a blatant disregard for human life. There were small kids in the area of the shooting and no regard for their safety or others in the area. Thank god no innocent people were injured,” Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd said through the release.    

All four remain in custody at the Darlington County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing, according to the release.

All four could face additional charges as well, according to the release.
