A Columbia man accused of shooting into a crowd, resulting in the injuries of two people last month has been arrested.

Isaiah Deshaun Butler, 20, is charged with two counts of attempted murder for shooting several times at Riverbend Apartments in West Columbia, according to arrest warrants.

On Tuesday Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested Butler at an apartment complex on Southern Drive in Columbia.

"Based on information detectives gathered at the scene that night, they believe Butler fired shots from a vehicle into a crowd," Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. "The two people who suffered gunshot wounds during the Aug. 30 incident were transported but they're both expected to make a full recovery."

He's being held in the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
