A McCllelanville man has been sent to prison for an incident that took place at a birthday party last year in the Sampit Community.
According to the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, Joshua Rashaun Taylor, 21, of Old Collins Creek Road in McClellanville, was sentenced to 20 years in prison by Judge D. Craig Brown.
Taylor was convicted of Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature and Possession of a Weapon During the Commission of a Violent Crime.
The crime took place May 13, 2013 at a club located in the Sampit Section of Georgetown County called The Yield Club or The Brown Sugar Shack, a press release states.
“Taylor, who was at the club for his birthday party, got into a fight outside the club with the victim. After the fight broke up, Taylor ran off and came back with a gun shooting several times. Two of the shots hit the victim causing life threatening injuries. Surgery was performed on the victim, but due to the close proximity of the bullets to his spine and aorta, they were unable to remove the bullets,” the release states.
This case was investigated by Investigator Robert Sarvis of the Georgetown County Sheriff’s O
