Man charged in I-26 shooting that followed rap concert released from jail
NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A 23-year-old man charged for shooting at an SUV on I-26 in North Charleston early Friday morning following a downtown rap concert has been released from jail.
Arcainan Javonte Gamble was released from the Charleston County Detention Center over the weekend after he was issued a $100,000 bond Saturday. He is charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
On Friday at 2:18 a.m., the North Charleston Police Department responded to the area of Dorchester Road and Leeds Avenue in reference to an assault.
Officers met with the victims, a 19-year-old man and 21-year-old woman, who said they were going home after leaving Atlanta-based rapper Rich Homie Quan's show at the Music Farm when the shooting happened.
According to police, the victims were traveling on I-26 near the Cosgrove Avenue exit, when a white Ford Crown Victoria with tinted windows pulled up to the passenger side of the victim's SUV.
An affidavit states Gamble fired shots at the victims with a .40 caliber Glock 22. The victim's SUV was struck in both drivers side tires and twice in the drivers side rear door.
The victims then took the Cosgrove Avenue exit and drove to Dorchester Road and Leeds Avenue. Both of the victims then got out of the SUV and went behind the Cycle Gear shop on 4400 Dorchester Road for cover.
