Police have arrested a suspect in the alleged shooting of Alex Murdaugh, according to local station WJBF.

The suspect has yet to be identified.

The scion of a powerful South Carolina legal dynasty, Murdaugh reported he had been shot in the head on a backroad en route to Charleston two weeks ago.

Murdaugh’s wife and son were shot and killed near the dog kennels of the family’s sprawling hunting estate in June.

Murdaugh himself announced after the alleged attack two weeks ago that he would enter rehab for drug addiction, which prompted the century-old law firm founded by his great-grandfather to announce that he was under investigation for misappropriating millions in company funds.

Murdaugh said he resigned, while the firm, Peters, Murdaugh, Parker, Eltzroth, Detrick, said he was forced out.
