COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Colleton County deputies arrested a 38-year-old man in connection with a nightclub shooting earlier this month that left two people dead and two others injured.

Shaun Kelly faces two counts of murder in connection with the shooting at the Hang Time Nightclub, deputies say.

Officers responded to the club at approximately 2:40 a.m. on June 19 after they received 911 calls about gunfire.

The first officers on the scene began helping two victims with critical gunshot wounds.

Colleton County Fire-Rescue took both victims to an area hospital, but both died from their injuries.
