Greenville police said a suspect is in custody after a gun was fired early Saturday morning at the Blind Horse Saloon. 

Police said the shooting happened just before 2 a.m. on Lowndes Hill Road in Greenville.

Officers say they made entry into the Blind Horse Saloon to find employees attempting to control a subject, later identified as 27-year-old Brandon Phillip Harley. They were able to handcuff Harley and remove him from the location.

Police determined after an investigation that an altercation had occurred between Harley and another subject, and as staff attempted to remove Harley he produced a handgun, the report said. Harley then discharged the gun at one of the bouncers, but it missed and struck the bar, according to reports.

No one was shot but police said that there were minor injuries as a result of the scuffle.

Police seized the gun and arrested Harley. According to the report, he was transported to the Greenville County Detention Center and charged with the following:

  • attempted murder
  • possession of a gun during a violent crime
  • use of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol
  • weapon-unlawful consumption of alcohol - CWP
  • discharging a firearm into dwelling
  • pointing and presenting firearm

The shooting is still under investigation.
