The Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday that two men had been charged, and another was arrested and charged early Saturday morning in connection with the incident, which left one man — Clarence Mitchell III — dead and another man wounded.

During the incident, occupants of at least two vehicles exchanged gunfire. Following the shootout, upwards of 70 cartridge casings of various caliber were recovered in and around the parking lot of the Circle K.

Sheriff’s Office investigators charged Ronald Moore, 22, of Lady’s Island, with Obstruction of Justice and charged Montarious Brown, 19, of Burton, with three counts of Attempted Murder and one count of Possession of a Weapon during the Commission of a Violent Crime.

Dequarious Major, 20, turned himself in to Sheriff’s Office deputies early Saturday morning and was arrested on warrants for three counts of Attempted Murder and one count of Possession of a Weapon during the Commission of a Violent Crime.
