FLORENCE, S.C. – A man was arrested and charged with attempted murder Thursday morning following a shooting this week on West Palmetto Street in Florence.

At approximately 7:45 a.m. Thursday, Traquan Tyreek Dillon turned himself in at the Florence Police Department to face the charges of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

These charges stem from a shooting Monday night at 1524 W. Palmetto St. that sent one victim to a hospital with an apparent gunshot wound.

Dillon allegedly shot the victim during a verbal altercation in the Cruizers parking lot, then fled in a vehicle, according to the Florence Police Department.

After further investigation, officers obtained arrest warrants against Dillon.
