Domoneik Antwan Washington, 27, was found guilty by a Charleston County jury Wednesday of two counts of attempted murder and one count of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.
He was sentenced to 20 years on each count, to be served concurrently, for the shooting at the Kangaroo convenience store at 897 Folly Road on March 30, 2011.
Washington shot several rounds into a Chevrolet Impala occupied by driver Antwan Wilson and two other men, according to the solicitor’s office. When Wilson, who was shot in the right thigh, drove away, his car was chased by another vehicle which continued shooting. Wilson was hit in the back of the head and killed, causing the car to crash into a pole.
Washington later fled to Danville, Virginia, where he was apprehended by the U.S. Marshall’s Fugitive Task Force on May 16, 2011, and returned to South Carolina.
He was tried only for the shooting at the Kangaroo.
