MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -Mt. Pleasant Police are looking for 20 year old D'Angelo Coakley. Coakley is wanted on a charge of assault and battery with intent to kill in connection with a November 2009 incident.

"Mr. Coakley and the victim were at the Walmart and they had a verbal altercation. From that it led to very verbal altercation on the outside of the place," said Mt. Pleasant Police Cpl. Craig Harris.

Police say Coakley followed the guy to a construction site two miles away. "D'Angelo Coakley then brandished a black in color handgun and fired several rounds into the victim's vehicle while he was inside the vehicle," said Harris.

Investigators say Coakley's shots missed their mark. "One of the rounds actually embedded into the seat, the passenger seat area," said Harris.

Police say Coakley's been in prison before and say he doesn't want to go back. "Family members have made an attempt to have him turn himself in," said Harris. "People in the community have tried. He does not want to cooperate and turn himself in."
