BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WTOC) - The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office has arrested 23-year-old Willie Jamar Tolbert for two counts of attempted murder in a Saturday night shooting that left two men injured.

Witnesses at AJ's, a nightclub on Trask Parkway, identified Tobert as the person who fired into a crowd of people around 2 a.m. The shots grazed 51-year-old Abraham Jenkins' leg and struck 33-year-old Henry Brown in the leg. Before the shooting, BCSO deputies witnesses reported that Tolbert and two of his friends were involved in a series of fights.

After the shooting, Tolbert fled the scene. The victims were taken to Beaufort Memorial Hospital. Jenkins was treated and released. Brown remains hospitalized and his condition is unknown.

Tolbert was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center where he awaits trial. His bond has been set at $50,000 for each murder charge.

BCSO is continuing to investigate and identify Tolbert's co-defendents, who were involved in fighting several other people at the nightclub.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843.524.2777.
