A shooting at a Laurens Street apartment complex in Aiken left one man injured and caused a lockdown at a nearby school, according to a news release from the Aiken Department of Public Safety.
The shooting occurred after 8 a.m. at Colony Woods Apartments in Aiken.
Anthony Davon Daniels, 26, has been charged with attempted murder in the case. He is currently at large and should be considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
The victim, who is the suspect’s step-father, is being treated at AU Medical Center for severe but not believed to be life-threatening injuries, the release states.
The shooting also led to a hard lockdown of Aiken High School from 9:45 to 10:20 a.m., as a security measure due to its close proximity to the shooting.
All exterior windows and doors were locked and no outside access was permitted. The school’s principal provided updates to students and staff during the enhanced security procedure.
The lockdown was lifted after law enforcement cleared the scene.
