Colleton County sheriff's deputies are seeking a third suspect in a drive-by shooting last week on Ritter Road.

Antuan Devon Copeland, 25, is wanted for assault with intent to kill in the April 2 shooting in Yemassee, according to a Thursday news release from Sheriff George A. Malone.

Copeland is described as a black man, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 170 pounds, the release states.

Additional charges were filed against the first two suspects, who were arrested Sunday.

Lennon Jerrod Colleton, 21, of Lansing Lane in Walterboro and Rodreques Torrez Johnson, 21, of Blue House Road in Yemassee were charged with discharging a firearm into a dwelling, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and nine additional counts of assault with intent to kill, the release states.

Johnson and Colleton were already in jail, each charged with one count of assault with intent to kill.

Deputies were called out to the Ritter Road home at 1:48 p.m. April 2 after residents reported that shots were fired from one of at least three cars that drove by the house.

Several rounds penetrated the house, but nobody in the house -- including a 6-month-old baby and 8-year-old child -- was hurt. One of several people standing outside the house returned fire, shattering a window in a red Chevrolet Cavalier.

Deputies recovered the vehicle nearby on Blue House Lane. No one inside the car was seriously injured.

Earlier this week, investigators said they did not think the shooting was gang related. It was thought to have been linked to an ongoing dispute between two groups over a domestic issue and a separate issue involving a dog.

Anyone with information about Copeland's whereabouts should call the Sheriff's Office at 549-1203 or 549-2211.
