FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) — Florence police on Wednesday arrested an 18-year-old man who allegedly shot the driver of a car after an argument over a social media post, authorities said.
Za’Yan Tykown Murchison is charged with four counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime in connection with the Aug. 24 shooting, police said. It happened in the 800 block of N. Brunson Street.
Police said Murchison fired a weapon into an occupied vehicle, hitting the driver, who was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
Murchison remains in the Florence County Detention Center pending a bond hearing, according to online jail records.
The investigation also led to the Sept. 8 arrest of Crystal McKenzie, who police said fired multiple shots that hit a home during the dispute with Murchison. She posted a $4,000 bond and was released from the Florence County Detention Center on Sept., 18, according to online jail records.
No additional information was immediately available.
