Orangeburg man charged after roadside shooting near Pine Grove

LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County deputies arrested an Orangeburg man this morning and charged him with attempted murder after he fired shots at two people in a car.

Martel Dekarlos Gaddis, 34, is charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of possessing a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants.

“Deputies responded to a call of shots fired at the intersection of Kitti Wake Drive and Emanuel Church Road,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “They interviewed witnesses and, based on the evidence they collected, determined Gaddis fired a handgun multiple times toward a man and woman after he crashed into the back of their car.”

Gaddis was arrested at a convenience store near the incident location, according to Koon. He’s being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a bond hearing.

Koon said the investigation into the shooting is still open.
