COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A 15-year-old boy remains in critical condition after being shot in the head in Colleton County Tuesday. The teen's family says the tragic incident was a case of mistaken identity.

For the third time in four days gunshots echoed throughout Colleton County. The latest shooting happened on Keegan Drive just outside of Walterboro, where a 15-year-old boy was shot in the head. A 34-year-old man is behind bars.

The victim's family says the shooting happened over the suspect's ex-girlfriend. The victim's brother says a man knocked on the door of their home and the youngest of his four brothers answered. The brother says the suspect was looking for his older brother, who was at work at the time.

The suspect then asked the boy for a cup of water and came inside the home, then opened fire on the 15-year-old boy.

Colleton County investigators arrested Shag Marshall from Kershaw after his scent was trailed by police dogs through the woods...

 "Whenever the canine units were able to run the track get close to him - he was getting close to the perimeter trying to get through," Chief Deputy Ted Stanfield said. "Pretty good idea that we've got the right suspect in custody."

The suspect has a rap sheet dating all the way back to 1994, including felony drug charges, felony weapons charges and burglary.

In this case, Marshall is charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. He is behind bars at the Colleton County Detention Center.

Authorities say the victim's 17-year-old brother, who was also at the scene, received a minor injury from the shooting.
