WALHALLA, S.C. -

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office has charged two Seneca men in a drive-by shooting that happened there in April.

Deputies say 35 year old Ronnie Joe Patterson, Jr. faces charges of attempted murder, discharging a firearm into a dwelling, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent felony, possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime, and discharging a firearm into a vehicle.

Deputies didn't have to look far to find Patterson. He is currently in a facility in Allendale after his arrest in Oconee County on June 4th on three outstanding warrants, including one for a sex offender registry violation for failing to register first offense.

They say 35 year old Timothy Wayne Owens faces a charge of accessory after the fact of a felony.  Owens was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center Saturday and was released less than an hour later on a $25,000 personal recognizance bond.

Deputies say Patterson shot a firearm into a home on Thatcher Road in Seneca while driving a vehicle on April 21st.

They say Patterson tried to kill someone there and hit the person in the ear as that person was sitting on the front porch of the home.

One warrant alleges Patterson carried a firearm and was not authorized to do so because of an assault conviction with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct on March 26th, 2012 and was in possession of the weapon when it was fired.

Deputies also say Owens is accused of assisting Patterson in attempting to sell the firearm used in the shooting between April 21st and April 30th.
