Man arrested in Columbia restaurant shooting
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Columbia police have arrested one man in the shooting death of a man at a restaurant earlier this month.
Twenty-three-year-old Terrell Lamont Bethel is charged with seven counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, firing a gun into an occupied place, possession of drugs and failure to stop for police.
Twenty-year-old Steve McCoy of Elgin was killed in the Sept. 15 shooting and two other people were injured.
Police say Bethel was part of a group that became involved in an argument at the restaurant and several people drew guns. Police spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons says investigators do not think Bethel fired the shot that killed McCoy.
Officers are looking for a second suspect.
It was not clear if Bethel he has a lawyer.
