WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - A judge has denied bond for a 21-year-old accused of firing shots inside a West Ashley Chuck E. Cheese's, injuring two people.
Charleston Police say Thailando Daiquan King is charged with two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
On Wednesday, a judge denied bond for King on the two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, stating the suspect showed a complete disregard for children during the shooting. Bond was set at $100,000 on the weapons charge.
The Oct. 11 incident happened around 8:15 p.m. when a man got in an argument with two other men inside the Chuck E. Cheese's.
In court documents, investigators said the argument stemmed from King feeling his mother had been "disrespected." King left the business with friends after management asked them to leave, but returned a short time later and hopped over a partition to avoid being noticed by the restaurant's staff, the affidavit states.
A CPD press release states that the man then fired a weapon at the two men in a "wanton and reckless manner and without regard for the numerous patrons inside of the business, including many children."
One victim was shot in the buttocks and the other was shot in the left thigh, according to court papers. The two men were transported to MUSC and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
