BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities have arrested several people in connection to a shooting in Moncks Corner that wounded two children and an adult.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested 21-year-old Raekwon Andrew Tucker of North Charleston, 20-year-old Montrai Tyrece Bonneau-Gaillard of North Charleston, 21-year-old Shyheim Raekwon Lewis of North Charleston and a 16-year-old juvenile.

Sheriff Duane Lewis said the suspects are being charged with three counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and the 16 year old will be charged as an adult.

Jamez Kelly, 19, was previously arrested on July 29 and charged with three counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

"Berkeley County Sheriff's detectives confirmed that all of the individuals involved in the shooting had previously been at the party at Baker's house, just prior to the shooting incident," officials said.

BCSO investigators say 35-year-old Tangala L. Baker of Moncks Corner has also been charged with the delinquency of a minor due the unlawful activities she was permitting at the party location.

"I hope that our efforts will help bring closure to the victims and their families by knowing those responsible have been brought to justice," Sheriff Lewis said."I have zero tolerance for these types of criminals and their blatant disregard for the law and safety of our citizens in Berkeley County."

The July 24 shooting happened on Nelson Ferry Road following a birthday party on Mitton Road in Moncks Corner, deputies say.

According to the sheriff's office, after the party ended, people were walking down Nelson Ferry Road when passengers in a car opened fire.

Three were wounded and two of them were children, deputies say.
