A man with ties to Columbus is accused in the Sunday shooting death of a Seneca, S.C., man and injuring three others in a dispute at Sonny’s Bar and Grill.

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as Dw’Ntraquis Rashaad Campbell of Greenwood, S.C. He is charged with murder in the death of Anthony L. Holden, three counts of attempted murder in the shooting of three others and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

A search is underway for Campbell who authorities said goes by “Rah-Rah,” Rashaad or “Shaad”. Public information officer Jimmy Watt of the sheriff’s office said Campbell, 30, is wanted on outstanding warrants in Columbus. Records show he is wanted for a probation violation on a felony charge.

“The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing this active and ongoing investigation and additional charges and warrants are pending in this case,” Capt. Greg Reed of the Criminal Investigations Division said.

Seneca is 37 miles from Greenville, S.C., and 225 miles from Columbus.

Deputies were called to the restaurant to investigate a fight and large crowd at the intersection of Wells Highway and Shiloh Road. Before they arrived, deputies received reports of shots fired and individuals wounded.

Holden was found with a gunshot wound in the abdomen. A second man was shot in the leg, a woman was shot in both legs and a third man was shot at but not hit by gunfire.

Campbell is considered armed and dangerous and he shouldn’t be approached. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Campbell should call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office at 864-718-1052.----
