A North Charleston teenager was arrested after a house was shot up Tuesday night.
Daqone Jerome Lance, 19, of Madden Drive is charged with unlawful carrying of a firearm and resisting arrest.
A 68-year old man who lives on Branch Avenue told officers he was sitting on the couch watching TV when he heard gunshots and windows shatter, according to the police report. Officers said they found 11 spent cartridges in front of the house and five more in the side yard. Two windows were also broken.
The incident started at 10:43 p.m. Tuesday, when an officer conducting a traffic stop at Gaslight Square heard several shots, according to the report. The officer said he went toward Branch Avenue and saw a Lincoln Town Car and a black Ford Expedition turn onto Remount Road from Dakota Street. The Town Car lost traction because of the wet road, spun around in the middle of Remount Road and sped off, according to the report.
Officers brought the car to a stop with deflation devices near the Food Lion on Remount Road. The car jumped a sidewalk, and three people got out and ran toward Sumner Avenue, according to the report.
Police caught Lance in front of Seacoast Church. Video from a police car shows Lance sitting in the back seat of the Town Car, according to the report. He told officers he didn’t know who owned the Town Car, according to the report.
When officers searched the car, they said they found a Draco AK-47 pistol that was reported stolen in Berkeley County and multiple spent cartridges.
Lance was being held in the Charleston County jail on $20,470 bail Wednesday.
