North Charleston police arrested a third man in connection with a November shooting in the Park Circle area that killed one and left two others wounded.

Police arrested Daqjan Henry Gilliard, 20, on Monday night on one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder, according to North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor.

Officers responded on Nov. 22 to the area of Montague and I-26 on a call of shots being fired from a moving vehicle. Responding officers discovered two vehicles wrecked in the inner part of the circle. The first vehicle, a silver Ford Edge, had crashed into small wooden barriers and a tree and was unoccupied. The second, a red Dodge Charger was wrecked along the sidewalk area with one passenger dead from gunshot wounds, according to the incident report.

Police say that passenger, later identified as Franklin Williams, Jr., was found with a jar of suspected marijuana in his lap.

A rear seat passenger was found in the middle of the road with a substantial gunshot wound to his leg, the report states. The driver of the Charger was not on the scene, but police say he arrived about an hour later at MUSC with a grazing gunshot wound to the arm and admitted to detectives he had been driving the Charger.

Police say the Charger had what appeared to be spent .45 caliber casings in the front passenger seat which were observed when Williams' body was removed. The Edge had three cell phones, several spent casings and an SKS magazine on the rear passenger floorboard, the report states.

The day after the shooting, police arrested Keith Lamont Evans, 21, of Charleston, and charged him with one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder, Pryor said.

A second man, Quran Allen, was charged on Nov. 22 with obstruction of justice in the investigation. Allen's bond was set at $30,000, according to court records. 

Gilliard was being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
