Suspects Arrested in Drive By Shooting in Centre

Three people have been arrested in connection to the drive by shooting at a home in Centre earlier this week. Bret Lawless of Collinsville, Quartez Powell of Centre, and Dru Handy of Leesburg have all been arrested and charged with Discharging a Firearm into an Occupied Building according to WEIS Radio.

Centre Police Chief Kirk Blankenship says investigators received information that led them to the handgun used in the shooting. The shooting is believed to have been a result of a dispute over a social media post. Lawless, Handy, and Powell remain in the Cherokee County Detention Center on $15,000 bond each.
