CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A judge denied bond Friday for the man accused of shooting a woman in the head.
Lavar Walker, 29, was taken into custody, after an hours-long standoff at an apartment complex in downtown Charleston. He is charged with attempted murder, three counts of intimidating witnesses, and possession of a weapon.
North Charleston Police officers were called to a home on Alabama Drive in North Charleston Tuesday around 4 p.m. According to the police report, a man called saying Walker shot his girlfriend in the head. When police arrived on the scene, they found a 33-year old woman lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to her head.
The victim was taken to an area hospital. Her family says she is on life support and, when they decide to take her off of life support, the attempted murder charge will be changed to a murder charge.
