A North Charleston man is wanted on an attempted murder charge for his involvement in a July shootout on Ladson Road, authorities said.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office has issued a warrant for Montre Desean Brown, 19, of 2943 Alabama Drive.

Brown also was shot in the July 30 incident, according to a news release today from the Sheriff's Office.

The shootings happened in the afternoon, when three men armed with handguns began firing at the driver of a minivan who had stopped in the median on Ladson Road. The driver returned fire with a handgun, then drove off.

One of the men firing at the minivan was hit twice in the leg and was taken to the hospital. The other two ran from the scene.

Also during the shootings, the passenger window was shot out of a passing car caught in the crossfire, pelting a 76-year-old woman driving with glass shards. Another round was embedded in her car.

Brown should be considered armed and dangerous, according the Sheriff's Office.

Anybody with information about Montre Desean Brown's whereabouts or the crimes should contact the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office Dispatch Center at 873-5111 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
