      Florence man charged in night club shooting

      A 26-year-old Florence man has been charged with Attempted Murder for a shooting at a night club this month in the Pee Dee, according to Captain Michael M. Nunn with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

      Nunn said Andre Durant was arrested Monday.

      Investigators with the Florence County Sheriff's Office said Durant and other people who were inside a night club on Hamlet Street got into a physical fight in the parking lot on June 14.

      They said Durant got a firearm out of a vehicle and shot a victim in the arm.

      The victim was treated at an area hospital and was released.

      Durant is being held at the Florence County Detention Center on a $30,000.00 surety bond.

      The investigation into this incident is ongoing and more charges are possible.

      The FCSO Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team helped in the arrest because of Durant's "extensive violent criminal history", according to Nunn.
