A 29-year-old man received a 12-year prison sentence for his role in a fatal North Charleston shooting in 2010.
Christopher Gadsden entered an Alford plea to voluntary manslaughter in the death of 35-year-old Arthur Singleton III Tuesday. That means Gadsden did not admit his guilt but acknowledged that prosecutors likely could prove the charge against him.
Officers responding to reports of shots fired on May 25, 2010, found Singleton lying in front of his home at 2667 Ferrara Drive about 4:30 p.m. that day, according to police officials. Singleton managed to give those officers a description of the suspects’ vehicle before he died at Medical University Hospital.
Police caught up with a matching car on Dorchester Road, but the driver refused to pull over, and two men bailed out of the car on Blanton Street, according to police. Officers caught up with Gadsden, the passenger, after a short chase and arrested Stanley Greene at a home on Barony Park Lane, police said.
Greene’s alleged role in the shooting remains an open court case.
