Police Say Gang Dispute Sparked Shooting

A second suspect has now been arrested in a Greenville shooting this week that police are calling gang related.

Friday, police arrested 21 year-old Jecouri Barnes and charged him with attempted murder for a shooting on Sheppard street.

Police believe Barnes was part of a group of CRIPS-related gang members trying to kill a member of the rival BLOODS street gang. Police say Barnes was shot as one group of drug dealers tried to rob another group of drug dealers.

Thursday, police charged 20 yer old Eric Holloway with two counts of attempted murder in the incident.
