CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Police charged two men with attempted murder after a vehicle was riddled with eight bullets in a shooting in Cheraw, S.C. on Tuesday.

The Cheraw Police Department charged 19-year-old Holden Floyd with two counts of attempted murder and charged 21-year-old Damian Sellers with two counts of attempted murder, as well as one count of discharging a firearm into a vehicle.

In just a few minutes, the police received a call from McLeod Health Cheraw Hospital that there were two males at the emergency room with gunshot wounds. When officers arrived at the hospital, they discovered that there were three male subjects at the emergency room with two of them having gunshot wounds.

The officers also located the victim’s vehicle in the parking lot and found that there was about eight bullet holes in the vehicle.
