SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Police say they have taken the final suspect into custody in connection with the shooting incident on Glenns Bay Road Sept. 6.

Timothy Wayne Daggs and Timothy Devon Rouse were arrested Sept. 22, and Martin Alexander Gail was arrested on Sept. 6.  Daggs, Rouse and Gail were all charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

The incident report from the Sept. 6 shooting incident says a construction worker flagged an officer down and told the officer a blue PT Cruiser had just pulled out of the parking lot of an apartment complex on Glenns Bay road and shots were fired as the car was leaving.

When the officer went to the parking lot, they found the victim bleeding and motioning for help. The victim says multiple men were at the residence and began shooting. The report also says the suspects stole money from the residence.

According to Jonathan Martin with Horry County police, the victim was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Martin says four men fled the scene of the shooting and were initially tracked to Deerfield Plantation where they crashed their car.
