Armed robbery, attempted murder suspect surrenders to police
A North Charleston man wanted on attempted murder and armed robbery charges surrendered to police on Thursday.
Jharrda Brown, 20, of Luella Street was wanted in connection with an incident that happened on Sept. 23, police said.
A North Charleston police officer that morning heard screams and a gunshot in the direction of the Berkshires on St. Ives apartment complex off Greenridge Road about 1 a.m., an incident report states.
The officer headed toward the noise and stopped at the sight of a man walking in the road, the report said.
The man told police that he had just been robbed by two men outside of his apartment.
One of the suspects pulled a revolver from his waistband and demanded money, police said.
The man handed over a white iPhone, a black older model cell phone, a set of keys and $700 in cash, according to the report.
He told police that his girlfriend interrupted the robbery when she turned on the apartment’s porch light and opened the front door.
The startled suspects ran away, police said.
The robbed man chased behind them until the gunman fired one shot in his direction, he told police.
The suspects got into a white vehicle driven by a woman and fled the scene, police said.
Two other suspects in the case, Kadeem Felder, 22, of Clarine Drive in Goose Creek and Chanise King, 21, of Palm Circle in North Charleston were previously arrested, police said.
