ORANGEBURG, SC (WMBF) - The Orangeburg Sheriff’s Office arrested two men who fired shots at an apartment around 1 a.m. Saturday.

According to a news release, Javall Curry, 24, and Christian Asher, 23, both of Orangeburg, were charged with attempted murder and possession of a stolen handgun. Asher was also charged with failure to stop for a blue light and driving under suspension.
