The second suspect in a armed robbery and shooting Friday at a St. Helena Island home is in custody.
Byron Rasheem Moultrie, 22, was arrested late Tuesday at a home on Hogarth Street in Beaufort, according to a news release from the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. He has been charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, discharging a firearm in a dwelling and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
The first suspect, 18-year-old A-Tray Holmes, was arrested Saturday upon his release from Beaufort Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound he sustained during the thwarted robbery attempt of Brian Bryan's home on Reunion Road.
Moultrie and Holmes allegedly entered 27-year-old Bryan's home just before 10 p.m. Friday. Once inside, Moultrie shot his gun at Bryan, who shot back and chased the suspects from his home.
