North Charleston police are searching for a man who is accused of firing several shots Wednesday from a rifle at another man.

Kahlid Vanyur Gray, 33, of Wecco Street is wanted on a charge of assault and battery with intent to kill.

The SWAT team and North Charleston police were sent to Bennett Yard Road and Wecco Street at 1:35 p.m., according to the incident report. The area is off Dorchester Road just east of Interstate 526.

A man said he was standing in his yard on Wecco Street when Gray, who was standing near the intersection, shot at him four times with a rifle. The man who said he was shot at identified the alleged shooter, and officers set up a perimeter and called in the SWAT team. Gray was not located.

The case remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about Gray is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
