Deputies arrest second teenager in James Island shooting

James Island, SC (WCSC) - Deputies have arrested another teen in connection with a shooting on James Island last week.

On Monday afternoon, officials with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of 17-year-old Rayshad Kenneth Prioleau.

Investigators have already arrested Rome Javon Richardson, 17, who is facing two charges of attempted murder and one charge of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

James Island Charter High School was on lockdown for a short time Monday morning while deputies were in the area searching for the men.

There was also a report of shots fired, but deputies didn’t find anything. It remains unclear whether the lockdown and the search are connected.
