Investigators say a 29-year-old man accused of shooting a woman in the head has been arrested following a standoff at a Charleston apartment complex Thursday night.
The North Charleston Police Department say Lavar Walker was taken into custody at a Line Street home in downtown Charleston.
The US Marshals Office and the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Gadsden Green Homes for the wanted suspect.
They were seen surrounding a building.
Walker’s family also came out to the apartment complex and pleaded for him to turn himself in.
About 20 minutes later Walker and another individual walked out of the home.
Residents reported a large police presence in the area around 8:30 p.m.
