Man charged in shooting at West Columbia apartment complex

A Columbia man accused of shooting into a crowd and injuring two people last month has been arrested.

Isaiah Deshaun Butler, 20, is charged with two counts of attempted murder for shooting several times at Riverbend Apartments in West Columbia, according to arrest warrants.

“Based on information detectives gathered at the scene that night, they believe Butler fired shots from a vehicle into a crowd,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The two people who suffered gunshot wounds during the Aug. 30 incident were transported but they’re both expected to make a full recovery.”

Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested Butler Tuesday at an apartment complex on Southern Drive in Columbia. He’s being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a bond hearing.
