HEMINGWAY, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Hemingway teen with attempted murder.

According to a release from the GCSO, 19-year-old Marquis Latrell Washington is charged with attempted murder, pointing and presenting a firearm, malicious injury to personal property, failure to stop for blue lights, reckless driving, driving under suspension and possession of a controlled substance.

Deputies responded to the Bahá'í Institute on Williams Hill Road in the Pleasant Hill Community June 9. They received reports of shots fired and found two male victims who said Washington began arguing with them during a basketball game and started a fight.

The men told deputies Washington left and came back with a gun, fired several shots into the air and then shot out all four tires of one of the victim's vehicle.

Washington then reportedly tried to  to run over one of the victims before fleeing the scene. Deputies said he returned a second time but left when he saw law enforcement.

Deputies chased him to County Line Road until Washington crashed into a ditch on Moore Drive. Washington ran into the woods on foot but then turned himself in a day later.
