The U.S. Marshal’s Service helped the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office arrest two men wanted on attempted murder and other charges after an Aug. 24 shooting and assault.

A suspect, thought to be Johnson, shot Isaac Hammond in the abdomen and leg and struck another man on the head in the incident on Perry Street in Orangeburg, the sheriff’s office said. The shooting was not fatal.

Tyshon Demontrea Johnson, 18, Rail Street, and Orlando Devacon Neals, 26, also of Rail Street, were arrested by U.S. deputy marshals Monday morning in Hillsborough, N.C.

Johnson is charged for attempted murder and Neals, who was with Johnson at the time of the shooting, is charged with petit larceny and swindling related to an earlier incident.

Neals had a 1984 Chrysler Fifth Avenue car he sold to Orangeburg Auto Recycling on June 8 for $400, telling the business it belonged to his grandfather and he had permission to sell it, the sheriff’s office said. In fact, the car was reported stolen from Earl Guinyard of Orangeburg.
