Mt. Pleasant man accused of shooting at victims riding in car

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The North Charleston Police Department has charged a 20-year-old Mount Pleasant man accused of firing a gun at three people in a car Saturday night.

Investigators charged Jarvis Kendell Behrens with three counts of attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and unlawful possession of a gun during a violent crime.

On Saturday night, officers say they saw a Nissan Altima with Florida tags traveling recklessly in the area of International Boulevard.  A police report states that as the car merged onto the Mark Clark connector onto I-26, the car continued to travel in a careless manner on the road.

Authorities say at one point the driver was seen throwing what appeared to be a gun out the window.

Officers then stopped the car near the entrance ramp of Aviation Boulevard. According to investigators, officers saw a 9mm spent shell casing in plain view on the right rear passenger floor board.

Authorities found a 9mm gun where the driver was seen allegedly throwing a gun out the window.

As police were investigating the incident, a Buick pulled up to the officers. Three people in the car said they were shot at by someone in the suspect's vehicle in the area of International Boulevard.

Investigators arrested Behrens after he was identified as the suspect who fired at the three victims.
