A man run over by an SUV during a disturbance last month in Old Town Bluffton was charged Tuesday, accused of shooting into a crowd and the SUV during the incident.
Javon William Hamilton, 24, of Bluffton was hospitalized Feb. 20 after he was struck by a Chevrolet Tahoe outside of a house in the 1200 block of May River Road, a Bluffton Police Department news release said. The driver, 29-year-old Quaddray Dramel Gaston of Bluffton, was charged with attempted murder and released from the Beaufort County Detention Center after posting a $30,000 bond.
Investigators did not identify Hamilton as a suspect until he was released from the hospital, the release said.
The U.S. Marshals Service helped find Hamilton, who was at his home on May River Road, the release said.
