HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WSAV) – Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office investigators have identified the subject responsible for discharging a handgun in the area of Reilley’s Plaza on July 5.

Davion Sanford, 24, was arrested this morning for the discharge of firearms within town limits, unlawful carrying of a pistol, and possession of a firearm on premises where alcohol is sold.

Facts of the investigation were presented to a Hilton Head Island Municipal Court Judge and a Beaufort County Magistrate and the three warrants were issued.

He will be transported to the Beaufort County Detention Center and incarcerated following his interview with investigators.
