      Arrest made in shooting in Sumter


      A Sumter man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that happened Wednesday.


      Timothy Wilson, 22, is charged with Attempted Murder.


      The shooting happened at 4:45 p.m. at a residence in the 100 block of Carolina Avenue, according to Sumter police.


      A bullet grazed the 22-year-old victim's head, but he is expected to survive. He has already been released from the hospital.


      Wilson and the victim had been in an ongoing dispute over a female acquaintance, police said.


      When the victim and the girl stopped by a mutual friend's home on Carolina Avenue, they came into contact with Wilson who was also there.


      Wilson fired several shots at the victim while he was sitting in a vehicle in front of the residence, according to police.


      Wilson fled the scene but was found a short time later, in a neighborhood a few blocks away.


      Police arrested him after a foot pursuit. Officers also recovered a 9mm semi-automatic pistol used in the shooting.


      Wilson also faces charges for Possession of a Weapon during the Commission of a Violent Crime and Possession of a Stolen Pistol.


      He is being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center pending a bond hearing.


      The investigation is on-going.
