A Greenville man has been arrested in back-to-back shootings Sunday.

Investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office have arrested 28 year-old, Earl Tyric Smiley in connection to the back-to-back shootings that occurred in the early morning hours of January 6th.


During the course of investigation, investigators learned that Smiley, who was at an establishment called “Boom Boom Boom”, located at 3803 White Horse Rd., got into an altercation with a female before another individual intervened.

When the person tried to break up the altercation, Smiley pulled out a handgun and shot the victim at least one time. That victim was transported to the hospital and remains in stable condition.

Following that shooting, investigators learned that Smiley drove to an apartment complex, located at 1900 Boling Road Extension to visit an acquaintance.

Once inside, Smiley engaged in a verbal altercation that led to him shooting an additional victim before fleeing the scene. That victim was also transported to the hospital and remains in stable condition.

Smiley was arrested early this morning, in Charlotte, NC and is facing the following charges:
• 4 counts of Attempted Murder
• 4 counts of Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime

Although Smiley shot two suspects, investigators signed 4 warrants on each charge due to the close proximity of additional victims when Smiley discharged the gun.
