Ridgeland, SC -

Ridgeland Police have arrested five suspects in connection with a shooting.  Investigators believe that this shooting was in retaliation for a shooting that occurred earlier Tuesday morning at Woodridge Apartments.   Police were dispatched to 163 Shadetree Street around 11:41 for a call where several shots were fired into the residence.  A suspect and vehicle description were given to dispatch by a caller, police spotted the vehicle and suspects matching the description just minutes after the call.  Police said the vehicle was stopped and two suspects ran from the vehicle into the woods and one of the suspects discarded a firearm during the foot chase.  Within six minutes of the original call all five suspects were in custody with the assistance of the Jasper County Sheriff's Department.

Three handguns were recovered during the arrest.  A records check showed one handgun was stolen from a vehicle on Hilton Head Island in 2010 and another was stolen out of Georgia.  A Beaufort County Deputy along with his K-9 assisted in the search and recovery of the discarded weapon.

The following is a list of the five suspect and their charges:
