FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Over a month after a shooting in the Huddle House in Florence, the sheriff's office has arrested and charged the second suspect.

Captain Michael Nunn, spokesman for the Florence County Sheriff's Office, two men were arguing with another group in the Huddle House on West Lucas Street in Florence on July 1 when the two suspects pulled a handgun.

The two are believed to have shot and wounded three people, all of whom were treated for gunshot wounds at an area hospital and released.

Nunn explains that 23-year-old William Alexander Hickson of Lake City was arrested a week after the shooting and charged with attempted murder.

Hickson had a bond hearing and was given a surety bond for $100,000.00 and GPS monitoring.

After a month of searching for the second suspect, 19-year-old Jermaine Ryan Roberson of Olanta was arrested on Thursday, August 16 and charged with three counts of attempted murder.

Under South Carolina law, attempted murder is a felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison, none of which can be suspended or subject to probation.
