ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) -

Bond was set at $240,000 for a teenager accused of shooting at a deputy in Branchville Friday afternoon.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office charged 19-year-old Devourshay Antwan Williams with attempted murder. Authorities also charged 17-year-old Jefferey Isiah Mincer and 18-year-old Kadeem Neals with attempted murder as well. Both men's bond was set at $60,000.

Authorities say deputies were patrolling the Cattle Creek area as a result of burglaries in the area. A concerned citizen contacted authorities in reference to a suspicious vehicle in the area.

Upon arrival, investigators made contact with residents and three males. As investigators approached the group of males, one fired at a deputy. The deputy returned fire. One of the suspects was struck during the incident with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies were able to capture and arrest Neals, Mincer and Williams. All three suspects are from Bowman.

"We are grateful for the assistance of area volunteer firefighters, Emergency Management Services, the Department on Natural Resources, SC Highway Patrol, Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, and SLED in our search efforts last night," said Orangeburg Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.

Ravenell concludes "Without the assistance of the Cattle Creek Crime Watch patrolling, our response time would have been delayed. We need the eyes of alert citizens to aid us in making our community safer."
