NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A man wanted for a shooting at a North Charleston convenience store has been arrested following a standoff.

The North Charleston Police Department arrested Christopher Shavon Allen Thompson and charged him with attempted murder.

He's expected to appear in bond court on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the US Marshals Office responded to a home on the 2700 block of West Surrey Drive to serve an arrest warrant.

Police say agents surrounded the home and was able to make contact with the suspect's mother who said Thompson was inside the residence.

NCPD officials say after a brief standoff, Thompson surrendered.

He was wanted for an incident that happened on the afternoon of Sept. 12 when officers responded to Andrews Discount Market on 3713 for a report of shots fired.

Investigators then received information that someone had been shot in the parking lot and two suspects had led on foot.

When officers arrived they found a man lying on the ground, and he was suffering from gunshot wounds.
