TreQuan Stokes, 22, is charged with four counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a weapon during a violent crime, SLED spokesperson Renée Wunderlich said.

Investigators say Denmark Police Chief Leroy Grimes called in SLED agents to investigate a shooting in the Bamberg County town on June 15.

An Aiken man, 21-year-old Keith Sharpe, was arrested Wednesday and charged with four counts of attempted murder in the same incident, Wunderlich said .

Stokes and Sharpe were booked into the Bamberg County Detention Center.
