Charleston woman arrested after bullets hit car
A Charleston woman faces an attempted-murder charge after a car was hit by bullets in North Charleston last week.
Here’s what happened, according to an incident report from North Charleston police:
A driver told police he was at the intersection of Forest Hills II and Dorchester Road about 10:30 p.m. July 18 when a Nissan Sentra with tinted windows pulled alongside him.
The windows of the Sentra rolled down and the driver recognized a woman with whom he had an argument a week earlier. The woman pulled out a long silver handgun and shot at him three times.
One bullet shattered the driver’s window, a second bullet hit the driver’s side door near the mirror, and the third hit the driver’s side door near the handle, according to the report.
Investigators found broken glass but no spent cartridges.
Destiny C. Deas, 21, of Nassau Street in Charleston, was arrested Tuesday at a Summerville apartment and charged with attempted murder. She was being held in the Charleston County jail on Wednesday on $100,000 bail.
