COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Three people, including a 16-year-old, have been arrested in connection to a shooting and armed robbery that seriously injured a woman at a hotel earlier this week.
Devonte Anderson, 22, was charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, and two other charges Wednesday afternoon by the Columbia Police Department's Warrant team. He was taken into custody at the North Main Street Library.
During a court appearance Thursday, a judge denied Anderson's bond and he remains detained at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
In addition, 18-year-old Aaron Brown and an unnamed 16-year-old have been charged with attempted armed robbery and criminal conspiracy. They both turned themselves in to police on Tuesday.
Investigators believe the three men went to the Baymont Inn and Suites on East Exchange Blvd. on Jun 26 to rob a 22-year-old woman. During the confrontation, she was shot multiple times in the upper body. She remains in the hospital in critical condition.
Police do not believe that the victim and the three suspects knew one another before the crime.
