Detectives in the case determined the shootings were a result of an argument over Pinckney using the victim's car. Pinckney was identified as the shooter shortly after the incident. 

Pinckney was able to elude capture until last week when he was arrested without incident by US Marshals in Valdosta, Georgia, and transported back to Richland County.

Pinckney has been booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
