Arrest Made In Community Center Shooting

 In Local News

Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster has announced an arrest related to the shooting that took place at the Hartford Community Center just south of the City of Newberry.

Sheriff Foster announced that Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Kevin Michael Harmon, 25, of Pomaria, SC for Breach of Peace of a High and Aggravated Nature and Attempted Murder. Holland is in the Newberry County Detention Center under a no bond at this time.

Sheriff’s Investigators developed information that Holland fired several rounds from a handgun in the parking lot of the community center following a fight that had taken place inside. At this time, it is not known if those shots killed Jared Singley. Sheriff Foster said the investigation continues into the death of Singley and the wounding of another man during the shooting.

Sheriff Foster also says that while some information is coming into investigating Deputies, there are more people that could provide information in this case.

“There were several hundred people at this party,” said Sheriff Foster. “It is inconceivable that someone did not witness the shooting that took the life of Singley. Jared Singley was someone’s child, father, and friend. People should put themselves in the shoes of this family and understand how it feels to have a loved one snatched from them because of pure nonsense,” Foster continued. “Do the right thing and come forward to tell what happened. This is the only way we can get a handle on these horrible, senseless acts of violence,” Sheriff Foster concluded.

According to Sheriff Foster, more arrests are anticipated in this entire event.
