NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston police say they arrested a 23-year-old Thursday night who pulled a gun on a man during a drug deal, and fired off multiple rounds as the victim ran away.

Horace Edwin Green of North Charleston has been charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

According to an incident report, the shooting took place a Greyhound Bus Station on Dorchester Road on Thursday around 9:30 p.m.

Police say Green approached the victim after he walked off the bus and asked if he smoked marijuana. He then tried to sell the victim some weed.

When the two walked over to a corner of the bus station to complete a transaction, the victim told police that Green pulled out a red revolver and told him not to move.

The report states the victim ran away in a zig-zag pattern as Green fired multiple shots at him.

The victim was not injured.

Using a description of the suspect, police say they were able to spot Green near Azalea Drive and Woodlawn Avenue. He was still in possession of the red revolver used in the shooting.

Green was arrested and transported to Charleston County Detention Center after he was positively identified by the victim.
