A man accused of shooting two people at Club Isis in Pawleys Island last month is behind bars.
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson says Terrance Rayon Thompson, 28, was arrested by the Horry County Police Department Friday and is currently being housed at J. Reuben Long Detention Center in Conway.
Thompson is expected to be charged with two counts of Attempted Murder and two counts of Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Violent Crime.
The shootings happened Dec. 29. A 25-year-old Browns Ferry Road man was shot in the hand. When deputies met with him at the hospital, he said he was at Club Isis for a party. He said he was outside the club when Thompson started talking to him.
He said Thompson seemed friendly and calm at that time.
However, as the conversation continued, Thompson took out a roll of cash and then started saying things the victim said he did not understand. He said Thompson then got angry and yelled “you trying to play me?”
He said he asked Thompson what was wrong. That is when Thompson allegedly presented a handgun and pulled the trigger.
The victim said Thompson then “calmly turned and walked away as everyone started to run.”
The man said he did not realize he had been shot until his hand started feeling heavy. He said that’s when he saw his thumb was bleeding.
A bouncer helped him to the bathroom where the blood was washed off. He then called a relative to drive him to the hospital.
Also at the hospital, deputies met with a 24-year-old Georgetown man who had been shot in the right hand and upper thigh, a report states.
He said he was inside the club when he heard “a loud bang like a firecracker.” He said he ducked down and then ran to the door which is when he realized he had been shot.
He said he did not know who fired the shot. A man who drove him to the hospital was also unable to identify the gunman.
