COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Authorities arrested a 38-year-old man in connection with a deadly Colleton County nightclub shooting.
Shaun Kelly, 38, was arrested this week for his role in a shooting at the Hang Time Nightclub that left two people dead earlier this month.
Deputies with the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office responded to the nightclub, located off Rivers Street, on June 19 around 2:40 a.m. after receiving reports of gunfire.
