Greenville County deputies said one person has been arrested and two others are sought after shots were fired during a robbery at an apartment complex Tuesday night.

Lt. Damon Hubber, of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office, said a man was sitting in a van in the parking lot of building B at Fleetwood Manor when three men walked up and asked him for a ride. He said the trio then robbed the man.

Hubber said that as the victim was running away shots were fired, but he was not sure who fired the shots.

Deputies responded to the scene and search dogs were brought in to find the three men, Hubber said. He said one of the men was found hiding under a bed in a nearby apartment, but the other two were not found.

Hubber said the two men should be considered armed and dangerous.

No one was injured in the shooting, deputies said.

The man who was arrested was 26-year-old Marcus "Smurf" Wilson of Fountain Inn. He was charged with second-degree burglary after breaking into the apartment to hide, deputies said. He was also charged with simple possession of marijuana and loitering to engage in drug activity.

Deputies said no charges have been filed in connection with the armed robbery as it is still being investigated.

In March, Laurens County deputies said Wilson was wanted for attempted murder, pointing and presenting a firearm, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Wilson was accused of shooting a 22-year-old male in the chest and upper left arm early, according to deputies.
