BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The second suspect has been arrested after gunshots struck a home and parked vehicles in Beaufort County.

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office arrested James Howard Sunday, then Carter Mosco turned himself into authorities Wednesday in connection to a shooting on Dec. 3 on Hilton Head Island.

Warrants were issued for Howard and Mosco for seven counts each of attempted murder, one count each of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and one count each of discharging a firearm into a dwelling.

On the night of Dec. 3, deputies responded to a report of shots fired on Murray Avenue.

Deputies learned that someone had fired guns, striking a home and parked vehicles multiple times.

“Fortunately, none of the seven occupants of the home were wounded,” BCSO officials said."It was also learned that the subjects attempted to flee the area in a vehicle, but, after only getting a short distance away from Murray Avenue, drove the vehicle into a ditch."

Deputies say the suspects abandoned the vehicle and fled the area on foot.
