CENTRAL — A third person has been charged in connection with the shooting of a Tri-County Technical College student last month.

Haleigh Lynn Wallace, 19, of Clemson, is charged with felony accessory after the fact. She was arrested Wednesday, according to a news release from the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.

She is accused of helping hide a gun allegedly used in the shooting and also helping to hide another suspect, according to warrants.

Wallace was released Wednesday afternoon after posting bond, the release said.

The shooting occurred on Aug. 28 at The Cottages at Clemson, an apartment complex on Smoke Rise Drive in Central.

Deputies were dispatched after reports of gunfire within the complex.

Deputies found the streets within the complex “locked down” with “numerous pedestrians standing in the streets,” according to a release from the sheriff’s office

The victim, identified as 21-year-old Jaye Andrew Stuck of Pomaria, was found with what was determined to be a gunshot wound to the neck or head area. He was taken to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Stuck is still recovering, the release said.

Witnesses told investigators both the victim and the suspected shooter were attending a party held at 102 Sunrise Lane within the complex.

A crowd of between 500-1,000 people is believed to have been present when a physical confrontation erupted between several men, including the victim, the release said.

“During the encounter, one round was discharged at the victim, striking him while he was on the ground in the struggle,” the release said.

A 9-mm pistol was recovered from the scene.

Two men also face charges in connection with the shooting.

Jackson Quaid Rowland, 21, is charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Daniel Dixon, 21, is charged with felony accessory after the fact. He was arrested shortly after the shooting and is accused of helping clean and hide the gun allegedly used in the shooting.
