LANCASTER COUNTY, S.C. — One of two accused gunmen in a shooting at a Lancaster County nightclub that killed two people and left nine others injured waived extradition.
Officials said 31-year-old Breante Stevens was arrested last month in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is charged with two counts of murder.
"We are pleased Stevens is in custody and look forward to having him back in Lancaster County to face his charges," Sheriff Barry Faile said at the time of Steven's arrest. "His arrest is the culmination of non-stop efforts and cooperation among multiple law enforcement agencies."
Investigators said Stevens waived extradition and is back in Lancaster County.
Deputies traveled to Florida to pick him up. He was booked into the Lancaster Detention Center Thursday evening.
Stevens appeared before a magistrate Friday and bond was denied.
Antonia Emmanuel Champion, 30, is also facing murder charges.
Champion is in the York County Detention Center on a probation violation charge. It's unclear when he'll be transferred to Lancaster County to face charges in the shooting.
Investigators said Henry Colvin, 29, and Aaron Harris, 28, were killed in the shooting at Ole Skool Sports Bar and Grill early in the morning Sept. 21.
Eight other people were also shot and injured, officials said. A ninth person was hurt after falling while trying to run from the club.
Deputies said a disagreement may have led to the shooting. They said most of the victims were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
"As I have said before, our investigators and officers from the other agencies who are helping us have been relentless in their pursuit of leads and information in this case, and positive developments continue to occur. Every day we get closer to the full picture of what happened in Ole Skool last Saturday morning," Faile said in a news release.
Authorities are asking anyone with information about this case to call the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office at 803-283-3388.
