Demarcos Wyrick, 29, of Magnolia, was arrested Tuesday and charged with battery first degree and carrying a weapon. He is accused of shooting another man in the leg.

Around 8 a.m. Tuesday officers were dispatched to East Main near the old Sonic restaurant regarding shots fired. It was determined that the incident happened on Gladys Street, but officers were unable to find a suspect.

A few hours later an officer was called to the Magnolia Regional Medical Center emergency room in reference to a man with a gunshot to the leg.

An investigation led to Wyrick as the shooter.

He is currently incarcerated at the Columbia County Justice and Detention Facility awaiting his first court appearance.
