The Aiken Department of Public Safety has arrested a man who was wanted following a shooting incident last week.

Devontay Kaseem Gordon, 22, is now in custody at the Aiken County Detention Center. He has been charged with attempted murder, according to public safety.

Gordon surrendered to authorities at the detention center late this morning.

Last week, police arrested Latoya Denise Edwards, 28, of Belton, who also has been charged with attempted murder.

The shooting took place on Feb. 6 when officers responded to a call of shots fired on the 1600 block of Colleton Avenue about 10:30 p.m., according to Aiken Public Safety Lt. Karl Odenthal.

There, they found 35-year-old Anthony Oakman lying face down on the curb in front of the apartments with multiple gunshot wounds.

Oakman appeared to have a gunshot wound to the head, according to the police report. He was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center in Augusta for “advanced medical treatment” of his injuries.

Police have said there was an altercation between two individuals, during which Oakman was reportedly shot.

Public Safety detectives are still investigating the incident, and additional arrests may be made, according to Odenthal.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact CrimeStoppers of the Midlands at 888-CRIME-SC. Callers will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
