A traffic stop in Spartanburg County on Wednesday led to the arrest of a man with active warrants for attempted murder, deputies with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said. 

About 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday, deputies pulled over a car for speeding on Asheville Highway. The driver, Victor Miller, 23, said he did not have a license and that he had active warrants for his arrest, according to a report from the sheriff's office.

Deputies took Miller into custody and searched the car where they found a pistol, brass knuckles, a digital scale and two black and white bandanas with "gang related notes," deputies said.

Deputies said Miller had active warrants for attempted murder stemming from an incident on April 18, on Pierpont Avenue in Spartanburg.

According to an incident report from Spartanburg police, a witness saw Miller shooting at a man in the parking lot behind her apartment.

Police found three 9 mm shell casings in the parking lot and located the victim who had not been shot, they said.

Miller is charged with attempted murder, discharging a firearm into a vehicle, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, speeding, and driving under a suspended license, according to online jail records.
