CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - On Friday, a Charleston County jury found a man guilty on three indictments for the robbery and shooting of another man in 2014.

Judge Deadra L. Jefferson sentenced Marquise Kayron Kinloch of Mount Pleasant concurrently to 10 years of incarceration on armed robbery, 10 years of incarceration on kidnapping and 13 years of incarceration on Assault and Battery of a High and aggravated nature.

In 2014, Kinloch conspired with a female to lure a victim to the dead end of Williams Mazyck Lane in Mount Pleasant with the promise of sex and marijuana, according to a statement by Ninth Judicial Circuit Solicitor's Office spokesperson Heather Speizam.

Court documents show that Kinloch and two other men armed with guns, ambushed the victim—removing him from the car at gunpoint and taking his clothing, shoes, and an AK-47.

Kinloch and the other men then allowed the victim to get back in his car to leave but Kinloch began shooting at the vehicle.

The victim was struck in the arm and drove himself to MUSC, where he was treated for a gunshot wound.
