GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said a man has been arrested and charged following a shooting Wednesday morning.

According to an earlier news release from the sheriff’s office, deputies responded to Interurban Avenue at around 3:30 a.m. in regard to a gunshot victim, and when they arrive on-scene they found the man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Lt. Jimmy Bolt said it appears the man’s injuries are non life-threatening.

Investigators arrested Tamaz Demonqay Durham, 22, on two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a weapon during a violent crime after they determined that he was responsible for the shooting on Interurban Avenue.

Investigators learned that Durham had reportedly been in an ongoing domestic-related dispute with the mother of his child.

Durham reportedly drove to a house on Interurban Avenue at around 3:30 a.m. and started banging on the door.

After speaking with someone in the house, Durham started shooting into the home and hit the man in the leg.

Sheriff’s Office officials said there were at least two other people, including a child, inside the home at the time of the shooting.

The two other victims were not harmed during the incident.

Durham was arrested at a home on Riverwood Drive and was taken to the Greenville County Detention Center, where he currently awaits a bond hearing.
