COLUMBIA, S.C. — Richland County deputies have arrested a 15-year-old who they say shot at two of their deputies.
Officers say around noon Saturday, the officers went to a home on Red Winds Court to serve a S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice pick-up order for a probation violation. Deputies say they'd been searching for the teen for a week.
As deputies approached the house, they say they saw him sitting on the front porch. When they pulled up in their vehicles, they claim the suspect fired two shots at deputies, then ran inside the house and out the back door into the woods.
K9 deputies began a search in the woods but were unsuccessful.
On Sunday, Apr. 14, 2019, at approximately 11:30 a.m., deputies say he was found in the wood line in the 10000 block of Wilson Boulevard and taken into custody.
The juvenile suspect is facing additional charges of larceny for an incident that occurred on March 26. Also for an April 11 incident, he faces charges of use of weapon during a violent crime, unlawful possession of handgun by minor, malicious injury to personal property and two counts of attempted murder.
