The man deputies were looking for in connection with a Sunday morning shooting in Orangeburg has been arrested, officials say.
Shagura Ramon Mack, 36, was arrested after he turned himself in to authorities at the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office around 6:15 p.m. Monday, Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said in a statement released Monday night.
“Mack was informed that his photo was online as wanted in the fatal shooting of another Orangeburg man,” Ravenell said.
Mack was wanted on charges of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Ravenell said officers responded to the Regional Medical Center just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday after an Orangeburg man came in with a gunshot wound in the abdomen.
That man was identified by Orangeburg County Deputy Coroner Sean Fogle as Jermaine Holloway, 29, of Kemmerlin Road.
“Our preliminary investigation indicates the victim and a friend went to meet an acquaintance at a Belleville Road address,” Ravenell said. “As they were leaving the location, Shagura Ramon Mack ran to the vehicle and began firing shots in the vehicle fatally shooting the 29-year-old passenger.”
Ravenell said Holloway was taken to the hospital by a friend. He later died of his injuries.
An autopsy performed in Newberry on Monday shows that Holloway died of excessive blood loss from a gunshot wound, Fogle said.
Additional charges against Mack are pending. He will appear before an Orangeburg magistrate on Tuesday.
