ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Two men were denied bond for a fatal shooting in Eutawville as investigators continue their search for a third suspect. 

Bond was denied on Thursday for 18-year-old Zaquan Taste and 22-year-old Treshawn Jenkins on murder and attempted murder charges in connection to a shooting on Tuesday that killed a woman and injured a second woman.

Both of the suspects were also given a $10,000 bond on possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. 

Deputies with the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office are continuing their search for 20-year-old Matt Brown who they believe is in the Holly Hill area, and is considered armed and dangerous. 

Brown is wanted for murder and more charges are expected.

Deputies responded to a property on Craig Street at approximately 12:20 p.m. on Tuesday to investigate a report of a shooting.

When they arrived, they found one woman dead and learned a man had been taken to a hospital for treatment of what was said to be a gunshot wound, Walker said.

Witnesses told deputies several men in a black vehicle drove up and spoke with a man in a group of people at the scene.

As the vehicle began to leave, occupants in the vehicle began firing multiple weapons at the group, killing the woman and injuring the man, Walker said.

According to an incident report, the woman killed was hit by a stray bullet while she was sitting in a shed on the property. She was pronounced dead on the scene. Her identity has not yet been released.

Investigators spotted a vehicle believed to have fled the shooting location and engaged the vehicle in "a brief but intense chase," Walker said.

The suspect’s vehicle went into a ditch near a wooded area east of Holly Hill and the men inside deserted the vehicle and ran into nearby woods, deputies say.

From that point, a perimeter was set up to conduct a search over a large area of the county. Officers searched the area of Fourwinds and Catamount Road near Holly Hill for the subjects Tuesday afternoon.

Units from Berkeley County, Eutawville, Holly Hill, St. George and the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division joined the search.
