Quayshaun Xzander Clark, 29, is charged with murder, attempted murder, possessing a weapon during a violent crime and discharging a firearm into a dwelling, according to arrest warrants.

“Based on evidence collected at the scene and information detectives gathered during interviews, Clark fired a high-caliber gun, known as a Draco, multiple times into a home on Madera Road the night of June 9,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Multiple witnesses told us Clark had a Draco during the shooting.”

Clark can also be seen in a social media video at the scene prior to the shooting, according to Koon.

“Deputies arrested Clark Friday afternoon after community tips led them to a home in Gilbert,” Koon said. “Our work on this case continues. We encourage anyone with more information to come forward and share the tips they have with Crimestoppers.”
