Aireal Lakeia Johnson, 24, of Sumter, was charged with four counts of being an accessory after the fact of attempted murder and discharging a firearm into a dwelling; criminal conspiracy; breach of trust; larceny for failure to return a rented object and obstruction of Justice. 

The shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 1 when someone fired several shots at a home in the 5800 block of Broad Street. One of the bullets struck a 7-year-old boy in the leg. No one else was injured, despite two other bullet holes found in the home's interior.
