Saturday, September 29, 2012

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Richland County sheriff's deputies say the suspect in an attempted murder on New Castle Drive shoved the wounded victim out of his car and drove away.

Deputies are skeeing 27-year-old Ceven Michael Barnum on charges of attempted murder pointing and presenting a firearm, and armed robbery.

Deputies say on Aug. 8, the unidentified victim was shot in the upper body while he was in Barnum's car.
