Authorities said 21-year-old Ronnie McFadden Jr. is wanted for multiple firearms charges, credit card fraud, and cutting off his GPS monitor.

SUMTER COUNTY, S.C. — The Sumter County Sheriff's Office is warning the public to be on the lookout for a man with several outstanding warrants who may have information regarding a recent shooting.

The sheriff's office released a poster on Thursday asking the public to be vigilant as investigators search for 21-year-old Ronnie McFadden Jr. The poster said McFadden is wanted on warrants including possession of stolen firearms, unlawful carry of a firearm, credit card fraud, and violation of electronic monitoring - the latter because he allegedly cut off his GPS monitor.

The sheriff's office said he also has at least one pending warrant and is wanted for questioning in a recent shooting in Sumter County.

McFadden is a Black male who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 pounds.

Anyone with details on his location is urged to contact the Sumter County Sheriff's Office at 803-436-2000 or Midlands Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. An unspecified monetary reward is being offered for information leading to McFadden's arrest, the sheriff's office said.
