COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the Colleton County Sheriff's Office say one of five men sought in connection to a gang shootout at a grocery store parking lot has surrendered to authorities.

Investigators say 21-year-old Dylan Davarn Brown surrendered to authorities and is fully cooperating with their investigation into a shooting between rival gangs at the Ashepoo Grocery Gas station on 8642 Ace Basin Parkway in Green Pond.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office is continuing to look for 24-year-old Raheem Jamal Henderson, 22-year-old Tyrell Keron Jackson, 20-year-old Matthew Rashaun Jones and 21-year-old Charlie Edward Martin.

The four men are wanted for an incident that happened Tuesday afternoon, when emergency officials received several calls from the Ashepoo Grocery gas station.

Callers said two groups of people in two vehicles had exchanged gun fire in the parking lot of the business.

A caller told authorities that at least two people were struck by bullets, while another witness reported that his vehicle had been stolen from the scene.

While in route to the call, responding members of the Colleton County Criminal Investigations Division and the Special Response Team located one of the vehicles traveling down Green Pond Hwy, according to a sheriff's office report.

A traffic stop was initiated and four individuals were detained, including one 19 year old male suffering from two apparent gunshot wounds.

Investigators say that person was treated on scene by Colleton County Fire Rescue and transported to the Colleton Medical Center. Several minutes later, the stolen vehicle was located at a nearby residence.

Another person of interest was also located at that scene.

Authorities say they have impounded both vehicles and identified six of the seven individuals involved in the incident.

Investigators say they were able to link the Ashepoo Grocery shooting to a second shooting in city limits of Walterboro that occurred less than two hours prior.

Investigators from Walterboro Public Safety and CCSO say they are working together to quickly resolve both incidents. According to an incident report, all evidence indicates the shootings are related to local gang activity.

Both incidents are still under investigation.
