Lexington Co. deputies arrest 3 men following shooting incidents over weekend

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Lexington County Sheriff's Department has arrested three men following two different shootings that occurred on Sunday.

Two of the three men, 27-year-old Garrie Brown and 26-year-old Channing Dixon, have been charged with burglary, criminal conspiracy, and possessing a weapon during a violent crime after shots were fired during an attempted robbery around 5:30 p.m. Sunday on Berryhill Road.

Authorities said two men inside the Berryhill Road apartment fought and disarmed Brown and Dixon before deputies arrived to take them into custody.

One person suffered a gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital to be treated for what was called a non-life-threatening injury.

Brown was also charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. Bond for Brown and Dixon was set at $30,000 and $50,000 respectively.

Later that night, 17-year-old Ekarius Moore was involved in a domestic dispute with two females at an apartment complex on Cricket Tree Lane. According to officials, Moore shot the two females just after 9:30 p.m. before driving away.

Moore was later caught by South Carolina Highway Patrol troopers and Richland County deputies on the West Columbia side of the Gervais Street Bridge after initiating a chase.

The two women who suffered gunshot wounds in the altercation were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Moore was denied bond on Monday afternoon.

Both investigations remain open by the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.
