GREENVILLE - Cops have released the name of a man they say shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart before police wounded him. 23-year-old Lakim Anthony Faust will be charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder when he gets out of the hospital. He was shot in the arms and legs during a shootout with police.

Police say Faust shot a man in a car outside a law firm, crossed five lanes of traffic, and shot three more people outside a Wal-Mart in a random shooting. Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden says Faust's intent was to kill. “He had over 10 rounds of shotgun ammunition that was recovered and a small container at the scene where he was shot by police.”

Aden says it could have been much worse if not for some quick thinking individuals. “We had a reserve officer here that stepped up in the line of fire here and was a hero. We had citizens that stepped out there and made…at the right time phone calls and get doors locked to not allow this assailant to have a place to go and make this a much worse situation. So this has been a tragedy but if you look at this from the right position it really has exposed a lot of wonderful things about this community.”

According to the police chief, the cops have found plenty of evidence. “In the apartment we recovered shotgun shell boxes, which are consistent with the shot gun shells found at three scenes, computers, and various documents that are assisting us in piecing together the events on Friday.”

The four victims are currently recovering in the hospital.“They are all in various stages of post-op recovery. They have various serious injuries and we’re just hoping that they continue on a path of recovery.”
