SUMTER, SC — Sumter Police have arrested a 22-year-old after a man’s head was grazed by a bullet while sitting in his car Wednesday afternoon.
Timothy Jamal Wilson is charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and possession of a stolen weapon. He is accused of shooting a 22-year-old man out front of a home in the 100 block of Carolina Avenue about 4:45 p.m., according to a Sumter Police Department release.
Wilson and the man had been in a feud over a woman, the release states. When the man and woman stopped by a friend’s house on Carolina Avenue Wednesday afternoon, Wilson was already there. The suspect was then accused of presenting a gun and firing several shots at the man, who was sitting in his car.
The man’s head was grazed by one of the shots, but the bullet exited his scalp without seriously injuring him. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.
Wilson wasn’t at the home on Carolina Avenue when police arrived, but he was arrested after a short foot chase a few blocks away.
The suspect told police where to find the 9-millimeter handgun used in the shooting, according to release.
Wilson is being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
