Noise disturbance investigation leads to N. Charleston shooting suspect's arrest


Police say an officer investigating a noise disturbance at a North Charleston apartment led to the arrest of a 20-year-old attempted murder suspect.

The North Charleston Police Department arrested Tyquan Shamir Scott. Scott is wanted for a shooting last month at the Bossez Club on St. Johns Avenue where police say Scott fired a gun at three bouncers outside the business.

According to police, Scott was arrested late Thursday night after a police officer went to investigate a noise disturbance at an apartment on Buist Avenue.

The officer reported that he found the door to the apartment open and saw four men in the living room.

During this time, the officer said he could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the apartment, and saw in plain view a metal grinder on a table with green plant material around it.

When the officer asked the names of the four men, one of them later identified as Scott, said his name was "John Russ" and gave a birth date.

Another officer then recognized the suspect as Scott, since he had seen a wanted poster on Scott who had active warrants for attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Scott was also charged with simple possession of marijuana and false information to police.

He was given a $200,700 bond.
