RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - An "armed and extremely dangerous" man wanted by Richland County deputies on multiple charges, including attempted murder and attempted armed robbery, has been arrested.

Stanley Lamont Sanders, 19, is accused of shooting at and attempting to rob a man who agreed to meet with him to buy something.

Sanders turned himself into authorities on Saturday, June 23.

Deputies say the men agreed to meet on May 9 at the Mallard Pointe Apartments located on the 1100 block of Hallbrook Drive. The victim intended to purchase something from Sanders for $700.

When the victim arrived at the Mallard Pointe Apartments, Sanders told him to drive to the backside of the complex where he then approached the victim with a gun and demanded money. As the victim tried to drive away, Sanders shot at the victim's car. The victim's car was hit multiple times and he received a non-life-threatening injury to his head. He drove himself to the hospital following the incident and is expected to be okay.

Sanders is now at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
