Man Wanted for Murder in Maryland Arrested in Marion County

A South Carolina man wanted in connection to a murder in Maryland was arrested in Marion County yesterday. 36 year old Brian Austin of Georgetown was arrested after someone called 911 around 11 am and said a strange-acting man was parked at the Sunny Mart convenience store. The caller provided Austin’s plate information which alerted officers that the ‘man inside could be dangerous.’ Austin is being held at the Marion County Detention Center awaiting extradition to Maryland where he’s wanted for first-degree murder. No information about that case is available.
