GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Greenville police say an attempted murder suspect is wanted and another man is charged in connection to a shooting in a parking garage at Haywood Mall on July 4. 

According to GPD, the shooting happened around 4:20 p.m. in the parking garage near the Dillard's department store. We're told all subjects involved were detained.

Police say that through their investigation, it was determined there had been an ongoing issue between the two parties involved - which led to the shooting. 

A public information officer on scene said the subject who was grazed was initially going to be transported to a hospital for treatment, but was not due to a lack of severity of the injury.

Officers also initiated a traffic stop in front of the mall. According to them, the car they stopped matched the description of one seen leaving the lot, and officers say the person inside was indeed involved.

No bystanders were injured, but vehicles were damaged.

Monday, police announced they have active warrants for Allen Austin, 21. He's wanted for two counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

According to warrants, Austin grabbed a firearm from a vehicle after the parties had entered the parking garage and shot at the victim. A bullet reportedly grazed the victim on the right side of the head. 

Police also charged Tyler Floyd, 22, with discharging in the city and malicious damage. He reportedly fired shots during the altercation, with one of his bullets striking the windshield of an unoccupied vehicle in the parking lot.

Floyd's family reached out to FOX Carolina News and said he felt he had no choice but to fire back in self-defense during the incident.

Alright where are are all the people who support black lives matter in this situation? Oh my bad no white person was the one trying to hurt the black guy that's the only time black lives matter to the black lives matter supporters. Can't ride the fence people you support it 100 % or you don't support it 100 %......Can't pick and choose they matter all the time or they don't ..keep it 100. Personally I believe we all matter equally all the time and feel for any family left behind to deal with the negligent decision someone made to take or in this case try to someone else's life
