Man arrested in connection with park shooting
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- A man has been arrested in connection with a Soccer Complex shooting that took place Tuesday.
Richland County investigators say Quenzada Martin was taken into custody Friday. He's facing charges of two counts of attempted murder and two counts of pointing and presenting a weapon.
Deputies say that on Tuesday at 6 p.m., shots were fired at the Polo Road Park in Columbia, and they determined 10-12 men were arguing at the rear of the parking lot. That's when investigators say Martin starting firing shots at the victims after the argument turned physical.
Martin is at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing. Sheriff Leon Lott says the investigation continues into whether other people involved in the argument will be charged with any crime.
