Suspect Arrested After Late Night Shooting

COLUMBIA (WLTX) -- Richland County deputies have arrested a suspect in connection with a late night shooting near the Austin Woods apartments on Garners Ferry Road Thursday.

Deputies say the victim was entering his apartment when he was approached by a man he says he doesn't know. The victim says the suspect demanded he owed him money.

After an exchange, the victim says he turned around and heard a gunshot before realizing he was grazed by a bullet. He then ran across the street to the Citgo and called 911.

The suspect--identified as 25-year-old Wilbert Green Jr.--was arrested, but the Richland County jail wouldn't accept him because he was being overly combative. The suspect was then taken to the hospital.

The victim was treated by EMS on the scene.
