Man accused of firing shots during road rage incident on I-26

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police say a Summerville man accused of firing a gun during a road rage incident on I-26 surrendered to investigators Tuesday afternoon.

The North Charleston Police Department charged 23-year-old Armond Jesus Bannister with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

On Feb. 14, officers responded to the Dollar Choice Store on 3670 in reference to a road rage incident. The 23-year-old victim told officers that while he was driving on I-26 in the area of the Ashley Phosphate Road exit, he and another driver were involved in a road rage incident that involved gun shots being fired.

According to the victim, it all started when the suspect's car cut him off. The victim said he then cut the suspect off.

The victim said the suspect then started driving close behind him, and in an effort to stop the suspect, the victim started to tap his breaks.

A police report states that the suspect then pulled along side the victim's car, rolled his window down, pointed a gun and fired two shots.

Police say one of the rounds hit the roof of the victim's car and the other shot shattered a window and hit directly behind the victim's head. A round was later found in the rear door handle.

The victim was able to take down the license plate of the suspect's vehicle. Bannister is expected to appear in bond court Tuesday evening.
