The April 7 shooting injured five people including four teenage boys and a 28-year-old woman. The teenagers were two 15-year-olds, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old.

Police said the shooting took place near the IOP pier around 5:15 p.m. Friday. Authorities were working to get two fights on the beach under control when shots rang out.

The Isle of Palms Police Department says two other people have already been arrested following the shooting. Shawn Alexander Goods-Martin, 18, was arrested and charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon. Goods-Martin was booked in the Al Cannon Detention Center and later posted bond for $25,000.
