COLUMBIA — Twenty-year-old Eric Cravens was arrested Wednesday in connection with the June 15 downtown shooting.
The arrest came after a "determined and methodical investigation" by the Criminal Investigations Division, Police Department spokesman Joe Bernhard wrote in a Wednesday evening news release.
Cravens was arrested by officers at 4:13 p.m. at 3500 Clark Lane.
The June 15 shooting occurred about 12:26 a.m. near the intersection of Broadway and Tenth Street. A 19-year-old man and two 23-year-old men were shot and suffered non-life threatening injuries. The shootings occurred as a large crowd of people were walking north on Tenth Street.
A member of the public captured the shootings on video, and the footage was posted by several people on YouTube. Police interviewed the person who took the video and said in an earlier release that they are convinced he or she had no knowledge the crime was about to take place.
Cravens faces three counts of first-degree assault and one count of armed criminal action.
