The Georgetown Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of Jarvis Jamison, 30, by the U.S. Marshals, the S.C. Law Enforcement Division and the Gwinnett (Georgia) County Police.

Police searched for Jamison since late March for the nightclub shooting on Petigru Drive. He faces charges of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Matthew Cobb Jr., 28, of Hemingway, and Tevin Washington, 28, of Georgetown, died from injuries suffered in the early morning shooting, according to the sheriff’s office. Another person also was shot and hospitalized after the incident.

Shortly after the shooting, Georgetown Sheriff Lane Cribb announced “enough was enough” saying they would try to take legal action to close the nightclub.
