CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A 31-year-old Conway man has been charged with attempted murder after a victim told police the man chased him and fired several shots at him.

Ryan Sumpter was arrested and charged with attempted murder and second-degree assault and battery for a shooting that allegedly took place on Bucksport Road in Conway on Sunday at about 4 p.m.

The victim told police that he was walking down the road when Sumpter got out of a car driven by another person, then raised a pistol, and fired a shot.

The victim then began to run toward a nearby church, and Sumpter ran toward him, the police report states. Sumpter fired two more shots, and the victim fell down. Sumpter then left the area with the driver.

The victim called police, who responded to the scene, interviewed nearby neighbors, and collected evidence from the scene.

Ryan Sumpter was arrested and incarcerated at J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Monday morning, according to jail records.

Nicole Parker, 28, was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Nov. 11 and charged with accessory after the fact of a felony. She was released on $15,000 bond less than 24 hours later.
