BENNETTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – A Bennettsville man has been arrested and charged in connection with a March 31 shooting that injured one person.

According to a Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office press release, Jamal Da’von Easterling, 22, of Bennettsville, is charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On March 31, the suspect allegedly shot a victim near Robbins Street and a nearby church parking lot within the city of Bennettsville.
