COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – An arrest was made Thursday in a deadly ambush shooting that killed two women in South Carolina.

Jamore Ellison, 18, of Orangeburg, was arrested and charged with two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder in relation to an ambush-style shooting, according to The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office.
