An Orangeburg man is accused of shooting a relative last week, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.
“This was some kind of a family squabble that led to a weapon being pulled,” Ravenell said. “No argument in the world is worth nearly killing someone.”
Anthony Jamison, 45, is charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Ravenell said Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators were called out to a Jamison Avenue residence on Sept. 24 after a shooting was reported.
Investigators were directed to the Regional Medical Center where a 34-year-old man was being treated for a gunshot wound to the leg.
The man said he received a call from a relative accusing him of being disrespectful to another relative.
He said that about five minutes after he hung up with Jamison, the Ferris Street man was outside of his residence and the argument continued in person.
The man alleged that Jamison pulled a handgun out of his pocket and shot him, shattering his leg bone.
During Jamison’s bond hearing on Thursday, Orangeburg County Magistrate Don West set bond at $45,000 cash or surety.
