ANDERSON — Brandon John Latimer, 20, of Williamston was taken into custody early Monday morning and charged in connection with a March 28 shooting incident in Anderson County.
Per the arrest warrant, Latimer is accused of firing two rounds into a Ford Mustang occupied by three individuals along Trail Court in Williamston about 10:45p.m. March 28. One round struck the front-seat passenger, the second round struck the rear of the vehicle.
Following the incident, deputies were dispatched to a residence on Brooks Road in Belton where they located and administered first aid to the victim before he was transported by EMS to AnMed Hospital for treatment. His wounds were non-life threatening.
On April 9, deputies received information that Latimer was seen in an area near H. I. Taylor Road in Williamston. A Sheriff’s K-9 Tracking Team responded to the area but they were unable to locate him.

A bond hearing was scheduled for Monday afternoon. A specific motive for the incident has not been determined but the individuals involved are known to each other.
