LINCOLNVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Deputies have captured the man wanted for a double shooting in Lincolnville Monday in Lumberton, North Carolina.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Chris Brokaw said 25-year-old Robert Edward Millen had been taken into custody.

He was wanted for two counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

The sheriff’s office said the gun used in the shooting has not been recovered as of Monday night, but its unclear if they may have found the gun when Millen was captured.

Authorities say the shooting happened at 6:14 p.m. on the 3000 block of Von Ohsen Road.

According to investigators, Millen shot his father and brother in a dispute over a firearm.

A report states Millen then left the home in a vehicle identified as a burgundy/maroon 1997 Chevrolet Silverado bearing SC tags: KTC-878 which deputies found along with a gun when he was arrested in North Carolina. It’s unclear whether the gun found was also the one used in the shooting.

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office say they are working a double shooting in Lincolnville Monday night.
