CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A North Charleston man has surrendered to officers for a shooting that lead to a 5-year-old girl getting shot in the leg.
Jimmy Deandre Henderson, 31, surrendered to Charleston police around 5:30 p.m. on Friday at police headquarters.
Officers charged Henderson with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
He was locked up at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
Henderson’s charges stems from an incident on Thursday at 9:30 p.m. when officers responded to the Ashley Arms Apartments in the 1100 block of Crull Drive to a reported shooting.
The victim, a 5-year-old girl, was shot in the leg.
Investigators say the girl was walking with an adult in a breezeway of the apartment complex when the shot came through the door of an adjacent apartment, striking her in the leg.
A male and a female exited the apartment where the shot was fired and checked on the victim, said Charles Francis with Charleston police.
The female remained on scene and the male left before police arrived.
EMS took the child to an area hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.
