The Bluffton Police Department has identified the second man involved in a disturbance in Old Town last week and is working with other agencies to locate him.
Capt. Joseph Manning said charges will be filed against the man in connection with a Feb. 20 incident in which a man was struck by a Chevrolet Tahoe and shots were fired outside a May River Road home. The SUV driver, 29-year-old Quaddray Dramel Gaston of Bluffton, was charged with attempted murder the next day, but police did not locate another man seen running from the scene with a gun.
Manning declined to release the suspect's name, adding that he has moved outside of the department's jurisdiction.
"We want him to be comfortable so he doesn't keep going from place to place," Manning said. "We're confident this individual isn't a threat to the community. This was an isolated incident."

Gaston went to a home in the 1200 block of May River Road about 3:30 p.m. to fight, police have said. Manning said investigators have a theory about what started the fight, but he declined to release additional details, citing the ongoing investigation.
Gaston was released Thursday from the Beaufort County Detention Center after posting a $30,000 bond, according to the jail log.
