FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A second arrest has been made after a shooting outside of a Florence club.

That shooting took place around 5 a.m. on Dec. 29 at Out of Bounds on South Irby Street.

Lt. Tim Compton with Florence Police said the altercation began inside the club, and the people involved were asked to leave. One male involved in the fight had a gun. After being kicked out, he fired two to three rounds into the wall of the club, and then left the scene.

Chelsey Toney, 19, was arrested for accessory after the fact of a felony. The presumed shooter, Xavier Hall, was arrested on Monday and charged with attempted murder.

Lt. Compton said another incident occurred around 5:45 a.m. at Easy Street, located on the corner of North Dargan and Darlington Street, on the same day.

According to Compton, an altercation among three people broke out and they were asked to leave. Compton said once they left, a man pistol whipped one victim and shot the other. Both victims were taken to McLeod Hospital for treatment and were released.

Compton said the shootings are unrelated and Florence Police are still looking for answers. WMBF News will update you with more information as it becomes available.
