NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police have arrested a second suspect in connection with a fatal shooting on Ferrara Drive in North Charleston Tuesday night.

A police spokesman said 35-year-old Arthur Singleton was shot several times. He was able to give police officers on the scene a description of the suspect's vehicle before being transported to the Medical University's hospital.
