NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Bond was set at $150,000 for a 26-year-old man charged in connection with an apparent drug-related shooting which left a man in critical condition.
Following a month-long investigation, North Charleston police arrested 26-year-old David Allen Williams Jr., of Attaway Street, on Monday, three days after he was released from the Medical University of South Carolina for treatment of gunshot wounds. Williams is charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
Investigators say Williams critically injured a 29-year-old man during the shooting at an apartment located at 1815 Clements Avenue on Mar. 22. That man is still hospitalized at MUSC.
During the initial stages of the investigation, police were told the victim and another man arrived at the apartment to conduct a drug deal, but once inside, three other suspects showed up and an altercation occurred.
Police said the 29-year-old victim and Williams were injured in the shooting that followed.
Williams was found in a nearby apartment immediately following the shooting suffering from gunshot wounds to his back and stomach. At the time, he told police he was shot during a robbery at Spruill and Clements avenues.
Williams is being held in the Charleston County Detention Center.
