Sheriff Leon Lott announces the arrest of a man for shooting into a crowd of people and hitting two of them.
The incident happened on Aug. 1 in the parking lot of 224 O’Neil Court. Deputies were called to the area just after 2 a.m. for reports of a shooting. They arrived to find a man and woman, both suffering from gunshot wounds. They were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Jaquan King (DOB: 11/3/1992) is charged with seven counts of attempted murder and one count possession of a weapon during a violent crime. He was arrested by RCSD investigators without incident yesterday afternoon, Aug. 24.
The investigation revealed that King fired shots at the victims and their friends after seeing his friend get into a verbal argument with them as they were leaving a nearby lounge. The argument stemmed from King’s friend making unwanted advances to the female victim.
King was booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
