The North Charleston Police Department has arrested a 28-year-old man accused in a shooting. 

Officers arrested 28-year-old Derrick Porter of North Charleston and charged him with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. 

Officers found him in the area of Rivers and Cosgrove avenues. 

He's expected to go before a bond judge on Tuesday. 

On April 16, officers responded to the Max Quick Stop parking lot on McMillan Avenue for a report of someone being shot. 

When officers arrived they saw the victim sitting in the driver's seat of a car with the window open. 

Authorities say the victim was breathing, making groaning sounds and had a gunshot wound to his forehead. 

NCPD officials say as emergency crews were transporting the victim to a stretcher, a loaded 9mm gun fell from the victim's pants. 

Officers reported locating cash near the center console and smelled marijuana inside the vehicle. 

Investigators found a 9mm shell case on the pavement next to the right front passenger side tire. 

The victim was transported to MUSC.
