A man was undergoing surgery Thursday night and another was arrested after a verbal dispute led to gunfire at a peninsula residence, Charleston police said.

Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said a group of friends were at an Odessa Street home about 4 p.m. when two men began to argue, and the dispute escalated into a physical one.

Kelvin Clay Shuler, 48, of Odessa Street was charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, Francis said.

The injured man was taken to Medical University Hospital.

Drugs, cash and a stun gun were confiscated Wednesday when Charleston police searched a South Street apartment.

The police department’s Special Investigations Unit arrested two brothers after finding 22 grams of marijuana, about $100 in cash and the stun gun, police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Trae B. Dickerson, 19, and Stephan Dickerson, 21, both of 30 South St., Apartment B, are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. They are being held in the Cannon Detention Center, Francis said.

He said information residents provided to police led to the investigation and search.

A Summerville man who was wanted on five arrest warrants was arrested Wednesday by local officers and a local and federal task force.

Michael D. Smith, 23, of East Richardson Drive, was located at his residence.

Arriving at his home were Charleston County Sheriff’s Office deputies and the K-9 unit, members of the U.S. Marshal’s Office Task Force and Lincolnville police, sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said Thursday.

Smith was charged with criminal domestic violence, criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, failure to stop for blue lights, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute cocaine, Brady said.

He said a bond hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. today.

“Army Wives” is among the semifinalists for the 2012 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.

The TV show, filmed in Charleston, and two other S.C. employers received national recognition for their support of National Guard and Reserve forces.

“Army Wives,” Savannah River Nuclear Solutions of Aiken and the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office were cited by the Defense Department.

The three are among 133 semifinalists chosen from more than 3,000 nominations. Winners will be announced next month.

Nominations came from Guard and Reserve or family members. The firms were evaluated on issues such as providing full benefits when an employee is on military duty, and caring for the families of deployed employees.
