DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Two suspects surrendered to Darlington County officials and have been charged following a September 26, 2014 fatal shooting.

Bianca A. Moore, 31, died Tuesday, October 7, 2014 in a local hospital from injuries stemming from being shot, according to Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee.

Alonzo T. Russell Jr., 30, of Florence, turned himself into Darlington County Sheriff's Office. He was wanted for the possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and possession of crack cocaine, according to Sheriff Wayne Byrd.

Brice S. Russell, 28, of Florence, has been charged with the same crimes as those of Russell, Jr.

A total of five suspects have been arrested and charged in the Darlington shooting.  According to the Darlington County Sheriff's Office:

Alonzo Russell Sr., 64, was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of crack cocaine.

Sylvester Lamont Jordan, 26, was charged with three counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Damaino Nicholas Thomas, 30, was charged with the same crimes as Jordan.

Five people were shot early Friday, September 26 after a drug deal apparently went bad, according to the DCSO.

Officials were notified of the shooting at about 1:39 a.m.; it took place in the 600 block of Turner Drive in the Palmetto area of Darlington County.

The injured victims were taken by a private vehicle to a local hospital before law enforcement arrived on scene. According to a news release from DCSO, one female victim was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head.

"The incident appears to be the result of a drug deal gone badly," Sheriff Wayne Byrd stated.

DCSO is working with the State Law Enforcement Division to determine what happened. More information will be released as the investigation continues.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call DCSO at 843-398-4501.

    There's a federal push to crack down on an herbal supplement called Kratom, a botanical substance that grows naturally in Southeast Asia. Some states are working to ban the substance the Food and Drug Administration claims has similar effects as opioids. The FDA also recently re-issued a statement on Kratom, saying it presents a significant risk of exposure to salmonella. The FDA classifies Kratom as an opioid, claiming it has "opioid-like qualities."
