A Columbia man accused of shooting into a crowd was arrested Tuesday, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
Two people were injured in the August shooting, and Isaiah Deshaun Butler was charged with two counts of attempted murder, the sheriff’s department reported.
The 20-year-old fired multiple shots at Riverbend Apartments in West Columbia, according to arrest warrants.
“Based on information detectives gathered at the scene that night, they believe Butler fired shots from a vehicle into a crowd,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said in a news release. “The two people who suffered gunshot wounds during the Aug. 30 incident were transported (to an area hospital) but they’re both expected to make a full recovery.”
