LAURINBURG – Police have arrested a Laurinburg man in connection to the shooting of two people in the Glen Acres area Tuesday night.
Andreas Leonardo White, 40, of Biggs Street is charged with two counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with a double shooting Tuesday night on Hickory Street in Laurinburg, according to Laurinburg police.
He is currently being held at the Scotland County Detention Center on a $5 million bond.
Authorities were called to a home in the 1400 Block on Hickory Street at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night. Upon arrival they found Andrew Everett, 27, of Sunset Drive suffering from gunshot wounds.
“He was transported to Scotland Memorial Hospital and later sent to another hospital in critical condition,” Young said.
Police made contact with a second victim who had driven himself to the hospital. Rodney White, 41, of Stewartsville Road was treated and released for wounds he received in the incident. Rodney White is the brother of Andreas White, according to Young.
Young declined to release the nature of the two men’s wounds.
The shooting was the end result of a dispute between the three, officials said.
