After a shooting incident at a Wilson Boulevard bar earlier in December, a man has been charged with attempted murder.

DeWayne Rutherford, 34, was arrested Friday morning on Jenkins Brother Road in Blythewood, deputies say.

He’s accused of shooting a 38-year-old man in the face after a fight at Hastings Point Clubhouse about 1 a.m. Dec. 9.

The man was shot as he was trying to get away from the scene in his Dodge van, and drove himself home before calling deputies. He was then transported to Palmetto Health Richland hospital, where he was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries.

Rutherford is being held at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing. Other arrests are expected in the case, deputies said.
