MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

A second suspect has been arrested in connection with a shooting in Remley's Point.

William Alston, Jr., was arrested and charged with attempted murder, according to Mount Pleasant Police Inspector Chip Googe. Alston was arrested during a traffic stop on Remount Road near Rivers Avenue at approximately 11:30 a.m., he said. 

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force made the arrest with the assistance of the Mount Pleasant and Charleston Police Departments, Googe said.

Police say the shooting victim was walking in the roadway within Remley's Point when he was shot near Holy Trinity AME church at 8:25 p.m. on April 6. After being shot, he walked to the Riverwalk Apartment complex on Seaport Lane where he collapsed, detectives say. 

"Several people in the area rushed to give him aid and to call 911 and give him EMS," said Chip Googe with the Mouth Pleasant Police Department. 

Police have said during the investigation it was revealed that the shooting was not random as the victim was the intended target.

On Monday, authorities arrested Darryl Evans II, who was wanted in connection to the shooting. Evans faces charges of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Both were being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center.
