KINGSTREE, S.C. (WCSC) - The Williamsburg County Sheriff’s Office says a 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with a shooting that killed two in early October.

Marquise Devonte Franklin of Greeleyville, faces two counts of murder, according to Williamsburg County Sheriff’s Lt. Daryel Moyd. He was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service task force Friday, Moyd said.
