Horry County police charged James Rowe, 50, of Conway with Attempted Murder and Sale or Delivery of Pistol to, and Possesion by certain Person's Unlawful, after they say he shot at a woman that gave him $40 for a picnic table he built, instead of $45.
Police responded to reports of a domestic disturbance where shots were fired at a home on Dargan Circle in Conway at 6:45 p.m. Sunday.
The victim was in the driveway with her friend when police arrived, according to a police report.
She told officers that Rowe shot at her with a handgun inside the house.
She said Rowe was upset about getting $40 instead of $45 for a picnic table that he built and sold to her daughter.
The victim said an argument started when Rowe made verbal threats against her daughter.
The victim says Rowe grabbed her by the throat, threw her to the ground, and then pointed a handgun at her and fired while she was in the living room.
The woman said the bullet went past her head, and Rowe shot twice more.
When the woman's friend called police, the victim said Rowe ran into the nearby woods.
She said he had a 9mm semi-automatic handgun and possibly a shotgun with him.
Rowe is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
