Arrest made in Aiken shooting

A 40-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of an Aiken man facing drug charges.


Aiken Public Safety officers were called to Christopher Maurice Johnson’s home in the 400 block of Greenville Street about 3 p.m. Wednesday, where they found him with gunshot wounds.

Police also say they found weapons, illegal drugs and money at Johnson’s home.

Darryl Lavon Snow was charged with attempted murder. Police said Snow was also shot but that the shooter has not been identified because Snow isn’t cooperating with investigators.

Johnson, 26, was charged with trafficking crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine within a half-mile of a school, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police are searching for Jennifer Lynn Oak­man, who will face the same charges as John­son. Anyone with information on the crime or the whereabouts of Oakman are asked to contact Crimestoppers at (888) CRIME-SC.
