The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) has obtained warrants for the arrest of 19-year-old Jeremy Toomer of Hardeeville for two counts of Attempted Murder and one count of Possession of a Weapon during the Commission of a Violent Crime.

At approximately 7:45 p.m. on the night of Thursday, March 2, the BCSO received a report of two adult male gunshot victims at the Wallace Creek Boat Landing on St. Helena Island.

One of the wounded men was transported to the Beaufort Memorial Hospital, where he received treatment, and was later released. The other wounded man was transported to the Medical University of South Carolina, where, as of press time, he remained in critical but stable condition.

Sheriff’s Office investigators and members of the Beaufort County Violent Crimes Task Force responded to the scene, where they processed for forensic evidence and interviewed witnesses. Through interviews, it was learned that a male subject, Toomer, shot the two men.

Witnesses reported that, prior to the arrival of deputies, Toomer fled the scene.

On Friday, Sheriff’s Office investigators met with a Beaufort County magistrate and obtained warrants for Toomer’s arrest. Toomey remains at large.

Anyone who has information on Jeremy Toomer’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact Staff Sergeant Todd Duncan at 843-255-3418 or Crimestoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111, if wishing to remain anonymous and for possible reward.
