2 South Carolina men accused in random shootings

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Two men have been arrested in connection with what a South Carolina sheriff says was a plot to randomly shoot at people and kill them.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright told a news conference Thursday that 20-year-old Bryan Marion Holder and 17-year-old Mattison Tyler Schomer are charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime and three counts of attempted murder. The two are being held without bond.

Wright said a 19-year-old woman was shot in the back on July 2 with a 30.06 rifle fired from a field near a convenience store. He said the woman was sitting in a car with a man when she was shot.

On the same day, a man was pressure washing gas pumps when he was shot at. He was not hit.
