MARLBORO COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A Marlboro man out of jail on bond has been arrested after allegedly shooting two people in the Wallace area of Marlboro County, according to deputies.
The suspect, Carlos Antonio Fletcher, 36, was out on bond after being charged with attempted murder after a shooting last year in Marlboro County, deputies said. Investigators tracked down Fletcher using the signal from a GPS ankle monitor that he was required to wear.
Deputies said they were dispatched at about 9 p.m. Thursday to McLeod Hospital in Cheraw after being told about two people who had been shot and had injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
Deputies later determined that a shooting had taken place at a home on Warden Lane in Marlboro County during an argument. Deputies searched the home and found a firearm that had apparently been used in the shooting, a large amount of narcotics and other evidence.
Fletcher has been charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, possession of a firearm by a felon, trafficking crack cocaine, trafficking a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
He was taken to the Marlboro County Detention Center.
