The Charleston County Sheriff's Office is looking for an 18-year-old accused of shooting a man who was walking home from a North Charleston convenience store late Tuesday.
Domineke Ray King of North Charleston is wanted on charges of assault and battery with intent to kill and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to affidavits. He is considered armed and dangerous, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Maurice Simmons, 27, was shot in the torso as he was walking home from the A-1 food store at the corner of Ranger and Dorchester roads, the affidavits said. He later identified King as the shooter, the affidavits said.
Simmons was in the hospital Wednesday.
North Charleston police and Charleston County sheriff's deputies responded to 2849 Ranger Drive about 11:20 p.m. Tuesday and found Simmons, of that address, with a gunshot wound.
Simmons told police a black male with short black hair, wearing black clothing approached him after getting out of a black, older-model "box-style" car.
Simmons ran home and fell down on a mattress in the living room, yelling to others inside to call 911 because he had been shot.
