ROCKINGHAM — A man wanted for murder in connection to a South Carolina club shooting is facing extradition from the Richmond County Jail.

The Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office has charged Little with the murder of 31-year-old Ronnie Oxendine, who was shot and killed outside Club Amnesia in McColl, South Carolina, just after 2 a.m. Oct. 10, 2021.

Bria Byrd, 23, of Rockingham, was also killed and three other people were injured.

Little is also charged with three counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and criminal conspiracy. He is being held for extradition on a $100,000 secured bond.

He makes the sixth person charged in the fatal club shooting.

Several days following the shooting, five men between the ages of 19 and 27, were arrested and charged in the case: Khalil Jaquan Watkins; Antuan Latice Zeigler; Kevin Robert Williams; Marion Devonte Ellerbe; and Ja’vonte Marquel Dockery.
