CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston Police say they have arrested the man accused in a shooting that killed a 35-year-old man.
Tre’ance Smalls is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor.
Smalls was arrested Monday without incident, Pryor said.
The Charleston County Coroner’s Office last week identified the victim of the shooting as Exavier Washington, 35.
Police responded shortly before 3 p.m. on Feb. 4 to the 3300 block of Kraft Avenue after a caller said that a bullet came through their wall from a nearby apartment. Officers looked inside the apartment and found shell casings and blood on the floor.
Inside, they found Washington lying on the floor of a rear bedroom of the apartment. He died at the scene from a gunshot wound, the coroner’s office said.
He was being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center pending a bond hearing on Tuesday morning.
