Deputies: Man charged after firing shots on interstate exit ramp


LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WACH)-- Deputies with the Lexington County Sheriff's Department arrested a man Monday night in connection with a shooting that happened on an interstate exit ramp.

According to an arrest warrant, 38-year-old David Joseph Moore has been charged with attempted murder.

“Based on our investigation, Moore drew a pistol and shot at a man after the two were involved in what could be called a ‘road rage’ incident on I-20 near exit 55,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Officers with the Lexington Police Department stopped Moore after the victim called 911. No one was struck but this could have turned into an even more serious situation.”

Moore was released from the Lexington County Detention Center Tuesday after a judge set his bond at $75,000.

The investigation into the shooting is still open, according to Koon.

He encouraged anyone with information about the incident to call Crimestoppers at 888-Crime-SC. Tipsters will remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward.
