GAFFNEY, S.C. (WSPA) – Two more suspects have been arrested in connection to a club shooting earlier this month.

The shooting happened July 7 at Hot Boyz Club on Cherokee Avenue.

Gaffney Police Department previously said two people were shot outside of the club where a private party was being held. Several vehicles were also hit by bullets.

Police said Christopher Kirkland was arrested Sunday in Georgia. He was booked into the Dekalb County jail, according to Gaffney Police Chief Chris Skinner said.

Kirkland is awaiting extradition to Gaffney for two counts of attempted murder, Skinner said.

Gaffney Police also announced that Marcus Dewberry turned himself in earlier this week in connection to the shooting.

Jail records show Dewberry remains in the Cherokee County Detention Center without bond on attempted murder charges.

Tyler Edwards was charged earlier this month with two counts each of attempted murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

Edwards also remains in the Cherokee County jail without bond.
