Investigators locate Orangeburg murder suspect in New York

Posted: Updated:
ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a man wanted for a fatal shooting in Orangeburg last year has been arrested after investigators located him in New York.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office says Taquann Rashea Morrison was charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder after officers and the US Marshal Service returned Morrison to Orangeburg.

On Sept. 12, 2012, authorities say Morrison, Terrance Shawan Johnson and Rosheen Ayer went to a home on Maedrine Street to rob people. An incident report states the suspects took out guns and began shooting at the victims.

One male victim was struck in the face, while another was struck in the back.

Johnson and Ayer were previously arrested for the shooting. Ayer was charged with murder, two counts of murder and one count of possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Johnson was charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

According to investigators, three members of Johnson's family had transported him to Pascagoula, Miss. in an attempt to escape arrest and prosecution. The three were charged with accessory after the fact.
