Affidavit: Suspect says he fired shots through door at deputies without looking

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A James Island man is behind bars Friday morning after Charleston County deputies say he fired shots at them.

Deputies arrested 34-year-old Tyrri Moore and charged him with two counts of attempted murder, one count of having a gun as a convicted felon and possession of a gun during the commission of a violent crime. A judge set bond at $400,000.

The incident happened around 9:45 p.m. Thursday in the 1800 block of Arsburn Road on James Island. Deputies received a call that a man was inside a home armed with a gun.

Upon arrival, the sheriff's deputies say Moore fired several shots at them from inside the home. Deputies established a perimeter around the home and the suspect fired several more shots.

Eventually, Moore came out on his own and deputies arrested him on the spot. Authorities found a .357 revolver in Moore's front pocket. Deputies did not fire a single shot in the incident.

According to a court affidavit, Moore told deputies that he fired several shots through the door at deputies without looking.

Additional charges may be filed as the investigation continues.
