A fugitive wanted on 10 counts of attempted murder in South Carolina was arrested in McIntosh County after marshals from the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force followed a car in which he was a passenger at a safe distance through Bryan and Liberty counties.

According to Stewart Cottingham of the task force, the incident came to an end when authorities conducted a high-risk felony stop near exit 67 on Interstate 95.

Jonathan Robert Green, 30, is wanted in Orangeburg, South Carolina, on 10 counts of attempted murder for reportedly firing at a home that had

No weapons were found in the vehicle, Cottingham said.
