CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A second suspect wanted for his involvement in allegedly shooting another man in the head Tuesday, turned himself in to authorities Thursday night.

Antoine Donell Alston, 23, turned himself in to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office around 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Alston was wanted for his alleged involvement in a shooting on Winchester Street in Charleston County.

Alston is charged with attempted murder, armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. He was scheduled to have a bond hearing Friday morning.

Investigators already arrested Eric Joseph Thompson for attempted murder and armed robbery. Thompson was given a $1 million bond Thursday afternoon.

The victim told detectives that Thompson and Alston, who was armed with a gun, went to his home on Winchester Road and demanded money from him Tuesday afternoon. A police report states that the victim was forced to his knees and pistol whipped with the gun.

According to investigators, the suspect fought the suspects off and was shot in the head as he ran for the door. The victim was transported to the hospital.
