NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a parking space dispute at a gas station led to a man being shot in the face and damage to four vehicles. 

The North Charleston Police Department charged 28-year-old Patrick Deshaine Williams with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime after he surrendered to police Sunday afternoon. 

He was granted a $600,000 bond.

On Saturday night, police responded to Murphy's Gas Station on 8599 Rivers Ave. for a shooting around 10 p.m.

Police say it all started when the victim and Williams got into a verbal altercation after the victim confronted Williams about his truck blocking a parking space.

Williams claimed he then shot the victim in the face, because he thought the victim was going to retrieve a gun from his car.  Surveillance video appeared to show the victim and Williams in a verbal altercation before the shooting happened.

Investigators say the video shows that after a few words were exchanged between the two, Williams shot the victim in the face.

Authorities say after the shooting, the victim's car then backed into another vehicle that was parked at a gas pump, and left the area.

A police report states Williams also took off after striking another vehicle with his truck.

The victim was later located at the hospital with a gunshot wound to his left cheek.
