A Seabrook man has been arrested on charges of attempted murder in connection with a shooting at a Beaufort apartment complex, officials say.
Jaquan Sanders, 23, was arrested on Thursday, June 4, according to a news release issued by the Beaufort Police Department.
The arrest follows an investigation into a shooting at Parkview Apartments on May 22, in which a 21-year-old man was seriously injured, the release stated.
Sanders, who is on probation for a prior conviction of failure to stop for blue lights, was arrested without incident in a high-risk traffic stop.
He was found to be in possession of approximately 88 grams of marijuana, a 9-mm pistol, 66 grams of suspected MDMA, or Ecstasy, a digital scale and multiple baggies, according to the release.
Sanders was also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Additional charges are pending laboratory analysis of the suspected Ecstasy, the release stated.
Sanders was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center, where he was denied bond for the attempted murder and firearms charges.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Investigator Skyler Waddell at 843-322-7974 or the department’s anonymous tip line at 843-322-7938.
