A person has been identified and arrested in the attack at the SC nuclear plant, according to multiple news reports. Doyle Wayne Whisenhunt, 66, of Arkansas was arrested Friday night. The motive for the attack was not immediately released. Whisenhunt is also wanted in Arkansas for drug and weapons charges.
Whisenhunt is charged with one count each of attempted murder, malicious injury to personal property, and unlawful entry into an enclosed place, according to Oconee County Sheriff Mike Crenshaw. (Source Link)
Although a commentor on this website mentioned the possibility that the suspect is a disgruntled worker, there is no mention on any news report of an actual connection, current or former, between Whisenhunt and the power plant or Duke Energy. Nor was such a connection made by Sheriff Crenshaw in the video of his press conference. The actual motivation behind the attack is apparently still to be determined; that he is a disgruntled worker remains a possibility.
