MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Investigators have identified two suspects from a shooting which left three people injured in Moncks Corner on Tuesday.

Moncks Corner Police Lieutenant Michael Roach said police were looking for 23-year-old Trenton Rashad Major and 21-year-old Darnell Quiton Reid.

Both men are charged with attempted murder in connection with Tuesday's shooting on Wall Street near Highway 52 which happened just before 2 p.m.

Police arrived on scene to find three people suffering from gunshots, but only two victims were transported to Trident Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Roach said the shooting followed a verbal altercation, but the third person injured was randomly struck in the hand by a stray bullet.  That victim was not part of the altercation, police said.

Roach said Reid and Major chased the victims and shot at them a number of times.

School officials said Berkeley Middle School was placed on lockdown for half an hour while police responded to the area.

If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Major or Reid, call Moncks Corner police at 843-719-7930.
