Hours after a man was shot in the neck, Blackville police officers made an arrest in the case.
Julious Tilley, 27, of 358 Robinson St., Blackville, was arrested Dec. 10 by the Blackville Police Department on charges of attempted murder and possession of a firearm in commission of a violent crime, according to a press release from Blackville Police Chief John Holston.
Tilley is accused of shooting 33-year-old Jeremiah Pryer of Blackville once in the neck around 6:15 p.m. He was found by officers lying on the ground outside the residence of 20588 Solomon Blatt Ave., said Holston.
Pryer was airlifted to MCG in Augusta, Ga., with non-life threatening injuries, said Holston, but has since been released.
Prior to being transported, Pryer identified Tilley as the shooter. Tilley was transported to the Barnwell County Detention Center.
Holston said the investigation is still ongoing.
