WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) -- Colleton County deputies say they have a suspect in the second fatal shooting in five months at a Walterboro nightclub. 

Authorities said Friday that 48-year-old Larry Henderson Jr. is wanted for murder. 

Investigators say Henderson got into an argument Thursday night with 52-year-old Leon Cockrum Jr. at the Chase Lounge. The two men knew each other, and authorities say Cockrum was shot several times and died a short time later at the hospital. 

Deputies say Henderson told officers he would surrender, but failed to turn himself in. 

This was the second fatal shooting at the club since September and the fourth shooting at the lounge in the past five months.
