CENTRAL, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 21-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder for shooting someone during a fight at a party that may have had 1,000 people at an off-campus apartment complex near Clemson University.

Pickens County Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said in a news release that Jackson Rowland was arrested late Monday.

Hashe says Rowland and several other people got into a fight early Sunday at Cottages of Clemson about three miles from campus.

Investigators say Rowland shot a 21-year-old man in the neck, but the victim is expected to survive.

Rowland faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of the felony. He is awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
