Laurens Police Department Press Release - November 22, 2023 

Laurens - The Laurens Police Department reports the arrest of Kion Osha Ligon in connection with a late-night shooting at the Topic Lounge on West Main Street.

On the night of November 21, 2023, just before midnight, officers responded to reports of gunfire at the Topic Lounge, where an altercation escalated, leading to an armed assault on the crowded venue. Kion Osha Ligon, along with an accomplice, fired shots from a vehicle in the direction of the night club, resulting in charges of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Laurens Police Department successfully apprehended Kion Osha Ligon without incident. However, a second suspect related to this incident remains at large. The second suspect is Malcolm Jamar Fuller, who is a black, male, age 27, 6’0” tall, and 180 lbs. (See attached photo, but note this is an older image, and his appearance is said to have changed. He now has a full throat tattoo with “LA” in the center).

The Laurens Police Department urges anyone with information about the whereabouts of the second suspect or details about this incident to contact Detective Sgt. Sellers at or 864-681-2351. The safety of our community is our top priority, and we appreciate the public's cooperation in this matter.


- *Considered armed and dangerous.*

  • At the time of the incident, Ligon was out on bond for two counts of attempted murder for an unrelated incident that occurred in February of this year. He is also currently awaiting trial for a conspiracy charge in relation to a murder in 2021.

Note: The two attempted murders occurred on Independence Ave, and the murder took place on Spring St. in the city limits of Laurens.
