ORANGEBURG, SC -

Friday the final suspect in September 10, 2012 shooting at a Maedrine St. residence will be arraigned.

Rodsheen Ayer was arrested in New York by the US Marshals and a NY fugitive task force on Oct. 15, 2012. For the past year, Ayer has been in a New York prison near the Canadian border on a probation violation. He was transported to Orangeburg by two Sheriff's Office employees.

The police  investigation indicates Terrance Shawan Johnson aka Gunner and Ayer went to a Maedrine St. home with the intention of robbing the residents. Three male victims were inside the residence along with Johnson and his accomplice. At approximately 10:10 p.m., Johnson presented a weapon and began shooting at the victims. One male victim was struck in the face, the second male victim was struck in the back, and the third male victim was not injured.

One of the shooting victims died as a result of his injuries.

Ayer was injured in the Sept. 10 shooting, transported to a out-of-town hospital for treatment, and used a fake name when asked about his gunshot wound injury.
