The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) arrested a Camden man on Feb. 22 in connection with an attempted murder case where an Elgin man was “brutally” beaten with a piece of firewood to the point where he requires reconstructive surgery to his face.

According to information on the Kershaw County Clerk of Court’s website, deputies arrested Isaac Carter, 29, of Red Hill Road on Feb. 22 and charged him with being an accessory after the fact to attempted murder. Sheriff Jim Matthews confirmed Carter’s arrest and his connection to the Elgin case on Monday afternoon.

“Carter drove McCray and Wilson away from the assault scene,” Matthews said.

Quenterio Jamal Wilson, 23, of Dixon Road, Elgin, turned himself in on Feb. 15 in connection with the beating, leading investigators to charge him with attempted murder. Deputies responded to a possible shooting on Dixon Road around 10:30 p.m. the day before. Apparently, either Wilson or another suspect -- Jake Santonio McCray, 26, of Wateree Boulevard, Camden -- had shot at the victim, according to witness statements. However, it wasn’t until trauma physicians at Palmetto Health Richland examined the victim that it was determined he had not suffered any gunshot wounds.

Carter does not appear to have a criminal record in Kershaw County, based on a search of the clerk of court’s website.

Following his arrest on Feb. 22, a judge set Carter’s bond at $10,000 cash/surety. A bonding company posted the bond the same day.

Matthews said McCray is still a fugitive and that investigators are still seeking information on his whereabouts. Anyone with information is asked to call KCSO Inv. David Miller at (803) 425-1512.
