NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - North Charleston Police say a man has been arrested in connection with a shooting at a motel Saturday night.

Darnell Dwayne Brown, 34, is charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Jail records state Brown was booked into the Al Cannon Detention Center at 3:41 a.m. Sunday.

Police responded to the Charleston Heights Motel on Rivers Avenue to a report of a shooting, according to police spokesman Harve Jacobs.

EMS took a victim suffering from a gunshot wound to an area hospital.

“During the course of the investigation, Darnell Dwayne Brown was identified as a suspect and located,” Jacobs said.

Brown was denied bond for the attempted murder charge, and his bond was set at $100,000 for the possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime charge.

Brown now has a no-contact order for the victim and is no longer allowed on the property where the incident took place.

In court Sunday, Judge James B. Gosnell Jr. said the condition of the victim is still on a day-by-day basis.
