Cops: Summerville man fires gun at car during drug deal at Best Buy parking lot

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators have arrested a 19-year-old Summerville man accused of firing a gun at a car during a drug deal at a Best Buy parking lot. 

The North Charleston Police Department arrested Andrew S. Miller on Friday and charged him with five counts of attempted murder and a number of drug charges. 

According to NCPD officials, he's also wanted by Berkeley County authorities for armed robbery, and has a probation violation. 

Miller's arrest stems from an incident on Wednesday when officers responded to the Best Buy on 7612 Rivers Ave. for a report of multiple shots being heard. 

The caller said he saw someone in a car firing a gun out of one of the windows. 

Authorities then spotted a vehicle matching the suspect's behind the Barnes and Nobles. 

Officers conducted a traffic stop on the car and found drugs. NCPD officials said a passenger in the seat admitted to possessing the pills and told the officer that they were Xanax. 

One of the victims told police she and four of her friends went to the Best Buy parking lot to buy marijuana. 

The victim said she stayed in her car and was not sure what exactly happened, but at some point, an argument started and Miller shot multiple times at the victim's car striking it twice. 

The victim told the officers that Miller had left the scene in a silver vehicle. 

Two bullet holes were found in the victim's vehicle, one in the rear driver side quarter panel and one in the rear driver side window.
