A suspect has been arrested in connection with a Dec. 2011 shooting at the S & S Club that left four people injured.
Officials with the Greenwood Police Department say they have arrested 29-year-old Joey Corvell Reid, of 230 E. Cambridge Ave. and charged him with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
Officials say that Reid has been incarcerated in a South Carolina Department of Corrections for a probation violation, but is now back in Greenwood to face his charges.
According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, police responded to the S & S Club on Magnolia Avenue just before 3 a.m. on Dec. 4, 2011, in reference to shots being fired at the club. When police arrived, they observed a large crowd in the parking lot and people coming out of all the exits and running away. Police then observed a female bleeding from her head saying that she had been shot.
According to the report, a large fight broke out in the parking lot. Officers were attempting to break the fight up when they saw a man pulling out a gun. One officer drew his weapon, but was sprayed in the face with pepper spray and lost sight of the man with the gun. A second victim was located at the club and Self Regional Medical Center notified authorities that there were two more gunshot victims in the emergency room that were involved in the incident.
According to the report, there were numerous shell casings found both inside and outside of the club. One of the security guards told police that he was “patting down” people that entered the club and found a .22 caliber pistol on one man, but allowed him to keep the weapon because he was a regular at the club and always carried a gun.
Investigators say they are still searching for multiple suspects in connection with the shooting.
