Two people were injured during a shooting in northern York County, S.C., early Wednesday. Three suspects were arrested after they led police on a chase on Interstate 77.

One of 10 accused affiliates of a Bloods gang from Charlotte, arrested in a September street shootout near Fort Mill, was charged Monday with being the getaway driver.

Khristian Sandi Kemokai, 18, is charged with failure to stop for a blue light and disregarding a stop sign, said Trent Faris, spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Kemokai had been charged with possession of a stolen gun and illegal carrying of a pistol.

He was in a car that crashed Sept. 19 after the shootout near apartments on U.S. 21 at Gold Hill Road.

Nine other people from Charlotte, whom police said are involved with the Bloods gang, were also arrested Sept. 21 in the incident, on charges ranging from weapons violations to attempted murder.

A sheriff’s office lieutenant on patrol Sept. 19 saw the muzzle flashes from the shooting and heard the shots, officers said.

Police pursued one of the cars that officers say was driven by Kemokai.

That car crashed on Interstate 77 after the shooting as police were pursuing the vehicle, police said.

Kemokai was found along I-77, Faris said.

Two of the alleged highest-ranking leaders of United Blood Nation are on trial, accused of running an organized-crime network with extensive ties to the Carolinas — from their prison cells in New York state.
