PICKENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A wanted man has been arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting in Pickens on April 14, according to Pickens police Chief Rodney Gregory.
Gregory said the incident began when two cars were near each other on Henderson Street about 5:20 p.m.
He said a green SUV pulled away quickly and was shot at by another vehicle. He said the SUV continued to be shot at as it drove to the Store and More on West Main Street.
Two people, a man and a woman, suffered gunshot wounds and were transported to a Greenville hospital.
The man was shot in the hand and the woman was shot in the leg, Gregory said.
Pickens police have issued an attempted murder arrest warrant for Christopher Mayes, 35, after Gregory said he was identified by the victims as the shooter.
Mayes was arrested on April 21 after law enforcement received an anonymous tip, according to police.
Police said a task force comprised of U.S. marshals, the Pickens County Sheriffs' Office and local police arrested him on four counts of attempted murder, one count of discharging a firearm into an unoccupied vehicle and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
Nichole Hogue, 30, was also arrested for solicitation to commit a felony in connection with the shooting.
