Police arrest man wanted in Wantoot Boulevard shooting

Eric A. Wigfall

A man sought after a shooting Thursday in West Ashley is now in custody.

Eric A. Wigfall, 22, of 1625 Samuel Road is charged with second-degree assault and battery. He is being held at the Cannon Detention Center, police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Francis said Wigfall is accused of shooting at a man about 4:20 p.m. on Wantoot Boulevard. The man, who was not hit by any of the shots, had been arguing with Wigfall and ran as the shots were being fired. No one was injured during the incident.

Information and evidence gathered during the investigation led investigators to determine Wigfall was the gunman, Francis said.
