NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A judge set bond Friday afternoon for a man facing charges in connection with a May 30 shooting that left a child injured.
Maurice Tavon Hall, of North Charleston, is charged with attempted armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.
Hall received a $30,000 bond on the armed robbery charge and a $25,000 bond on the charge of possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Police responded at approximately 4:30 p.m. on May 30 to the 5300 block of Albert Street to a report of shots fired.
When officers got on the scene they learned that the driver of an SUV and the driver of a black sedan were involved in some type of confrontation near Dorchester Road and Olivia Drive. The two vehicles then traveled to Albert Street where the occupants of the sedan fire several shots at the SUV, an incident report states.
Detectives say they found several video surveillance cameras at different addresses that captured the attempted robbery and shooting. A passenger inside the victim’s vehicle positively identified Hall as the man who approached the vehicle while holding a rifle and repeatedly struck the window during the robbery attempt, an affidavit states.
Police say a 6-year-old inside of the SUV was hit by shattered glass and transported by personal vehicle to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Hall is the third person to be arrested in connection with the shooting.
Police and U.S. Marshals arrested a second man in the incident on June 11. But police have since cleared him of any involvement in the incident and the charges were dropped, Pryor said.
Ronnell Davis was arrested on May 31 on a charge of obstruction of justice. Police said David was driving the SUV with his girlfriend and two children inside. Police have not provided details about the reason he was charged.
Hall was being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center pending a bond court hearing on Friday.
