Deputies said they have arrested a second suspect involved in a fatal shooting into a car along Pelham Road in February.

Greenville County deputies said Anthony Henderson, 23, was arrested Monday with the help of US Marshals and US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents and booked into the county jail on charges of murder, two counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

On Feb. 22, deputies said they discovered a car stopped along Pelham Road with two gunshot victims inside, one who did not survive. According to Henderson's arrest warrants, there was a third person in the car who was not injured.

The first suspect was arrested on Feb. 27. Deputies charged Billy Taylor, 23, with murder, attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

At Taylor's bond hearing, Ashley Hiott, the victim who was shot in the head but survived, spoke to the judge and Taylor, wanting to know why she and Rodney Nesbitt, 29 were shot.

"I'm not mad at you," Ashley Hiott said. "I'm just wondering why you would do this to me and my children... I had to watch my 3-year-old feed me. I forgive you and am not mad, just want to know why you did this."

Hiott said they had stopped for gas after leaving Croc's nightclub and left the gas station when they saw an altercation inside, but as they drove away, someone fired shots at their car. Nesbitt died at the scene and Hiott was rushed to the hospital. She said the bullet entered the right side of her head and is lodged behind her left eye, causing her to lose sight in one eye.
