WARE SHOALS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Ware Shoals Police responded to the scene of a shooting on East Katherine Street that left at least one victim injured on Monday.

Police say the individual was shot and sustained minor, non-life threatening injuries. That victim declined to be transported to the hospital.

Witnesses told police that one person fired from a car. They were able to describe the car and positively identify it in a picture shown to them by police. Officers say evidence on scene also matched that of the witnesses.

The owner of the car was located and taken into custody. He was identified as 25-year-old Dominique Jorday Stewart. Officers say they are seeking warrants on Stewart for attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and pointing and presenting a firearm.

Police are unsure if the shooting was gang related, but after investigating, they do believe it was a drive-by type shooting. The victim said he was sitting in his car when another car pulled up beside him and shot him in his arm.

The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Department and SLED are assisting with the investigation.

Per SLED, the Stewart may be connected to a string of incidents that happened over the weekend, including a suspicious fire. At this time, they cannot confirm the his involvement.
