MCCLELLANVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County sheriff's deputies say they have arrested a 24-year-old man who shot a victim in the leg after an altercation in McClellanville on Tuesday.

Herman Korey White turned himself in at the Charleston County Sheriff's Office Thursday morning for his involvement in the shooting. He is being charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

According to court documents, White and the victim were involved in a physical altercation in the area of River Rd. and Toby Rd. around 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19. Sometime during the fight, the suspect pulled out a black semi-automatic pistol and fired two shots at the victim, hitting him once in the leg.

Deputies say White then left the scene.

Authorities later responded to a fire department on Hwy. 17 near Hwy. 45 after the victim's brother drove him there for help. The victim was then transported by helicopter to MUSC.

Deputies say the victim identified White as the shooter.

Documents state White had threatened the victim in the past, saying he would harm the victim if he ever saw him again.

White's bond was set at $300,000. He is being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.
