CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Authorities on Saturday apprehended a 26-year-old attempted murder suspect.

The arrest stems from a shooting that happened last week on Johns Island.

On Saturday, Charleston County deputies and US Marshals Task Force agents arrested 26-year-old Deangelo Green for the incident.

Green is charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

An investigation revealed the shooting stemmed from an argument between two females. Deputies say Green fired a shot, hitting the victim in his cheek.

We’re told the victim survived.
