HARSTVILLE, S.C. (WMBF) – An altercation on the dance floor led to a deadly weekend shooting at a Harstville nightclub, according to arrest warrants.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. Sunday at Mac’s Lounge on Camden Ave.

Warrants state that one of the suspects charged in the shooting, 22-year-old Darius Dickey, pulled a gun following an altercation on the dance floor. Dickey allegedly fired multiple shots, hitting several patrons.

“It was very chaotic; people were running in all directions and some were still hunkered down using vehicles as cover,” a report from the Hartsville Police Department states.

Authorities arrested McCall at a home in Durham, North Carolina. He was booked into jail around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in Darlington County and now faces several charges including two counts of murder, attempted murder and discharging firearms into a dwelling.

McCall and Dickey appeared for a judge Thursday afternoon for a hearing where both of them were denied bond on their charges.

A judge told McCall that one of the factors in his decision was the fact that McCall was found in a different state.

“Due to the fact you’re charged with murder, even though you don’t have much of a criminal record, I do consider you a flight risk. Due to the fact that where you were located, your bond is denied on all charges,” the judge said during the hearing.

During Dickey’s hearing, the judge upgraded one of his four attempted murder charges to murder.

City officials said murder warrants have been rescinded against a third person in custody whom officers originally believed to be the suspect. That person, however, is facing third-degree assault and battery charges in connection to the case, according to the press release. The suspect isn’t being named until warrants have been served.

Dicaprio Collins, 21, Bryan Robinson, 29, and Garret Bakhsh, 18, were killed in the shooting.

Bakhsh was a freshman at Coker University and a member of the men’s lacrosse team.
