NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police investigators say they have determined a teen involved in a shooting in North Charleston on Sunday was attempting a robbery.
Spencer Pryor, North Charleston police spokesman, said officers arrested Terrance Kendall McNeil Jr. Wednesday at an apartment at St. Charles Place on McMillan Avenue.
Police say McNeil, 17, tried to rob a 20-year-old man in the 2700 block of Gordon Street on Sunday afternoon. The victim told police he was sitting in a parked car when "T" and another man walked up carrying pistols.
The victim told police he grabbed the gun as it went off, striking him in his left wrist. The victim said his attackers then ran away and fired shots as they ran off. The victim told officers he returned fire.
Investigators said they have since determined that "T" was McNeil, who later showed up at Medical University of South Carolina with a gunshot wound to his neck and ear.
McNeil is charged with attempted armed robbery, attempted murder, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. He is expected to appear in bond court Thursday, Pryor said.
