Logan Nathanial Cason is charged with three counts of first-degree assault and battery and one count of pointing a firearm at a person, according to arrest warrants.

“Deputies interviewed a group of witnesses right after this happened, which we believe started as a road rage incident,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The witnesses all told deputies Cason fired a handgun into the air as he drove, then pointed it toward the car beside him and fired more shots.”

Beer bottles and cans were thrown from Cason’s car toward the other car before the shots were fired, according to Koon.

“Deputies collected evidence, including multiple shell casings, from the road,” Koon said. “The location of these items was consistent with the information witnesses shared with deputies.”

Koon said deputies identified Cason as the alleged shooter during their interviews with witnesses. Deputies eventually located him at a home near Lake Murray. They arrested Cason at the home and transported him to the Lexington County Detention Center.
