Roshad Termain Griffin, 19, of two addresses according to warrants, 211 N. Fifth St., Easley and 124 Hawthorne St., Clemson, was charged last week with assault and battery with intent to kill, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, unlawfully carrying of a handgun, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana in proximity to a school, and possession of cocaine base, according to arrest warrants.
Johnny Antonio Walker, 19, of 108 Linwood St., Easley was charged with assault with the intent to kill, according to arrest warrants.
Easley Police Maj. Tim Tollison said Walker was arrested on Feb. 2.
Walker is accused of being with Griffin when the shooting happened, according to police reports.
Tollison confirmed the victim, Velesquez Demario Reed, drove to the Police Department to report he had been shot in the groin area.
“The victim drove up here and was in our lobby asking for help,” Tollison said. “That was a different experience.”
Reed was taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital, he said.
The shooting allegedly occurred on Bunch Court within Easley city limits, and police said witnesses told them a man “fired multiple rounds” at the victim before leaving the scene, according to police reports.
Witnesses stated the man had an accomplice, reports allege.
Police reports stated that while searching for the suspect’s car, Griffin was stopped and arrested. During the search of the car, officers say they found what they believed to be illegal drugs, according to police reports.
Sgt. Anthony Massingill of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office said Griffin was being held Monday on a $145,000 surety bond at the Pickens County Law Enforcement Center. As of press time, there were no reports on bond for Walker.
