ANDERSON (AP) — A private security guard is accused of fatally shooting a 21-year-old woman as she drove away from an Anderson nightclub.
The Independent-Mail reports (http://bit.ly/19zRdvn ) that 28-year-old Joey Johnson turned himself in Thursday on voluntary manslaughter and assault charges. A judge set a $50,000 surety bond Friday.
Johnson told investigators he shot in self-defense as India Lomax’s truck veered toward him. He said he tried to stop the truck because her passenger had a gun.
The coroner says Lomax died from being shot in the back. Her truck struck a car and pole after the shooting. Her 33-year-old passenger, Willis Donald, was shot in the arm. Anderson County Sheriff John Skipper says a handgun was found near the truck, but Johnson appears to be the only person shooting Saturday.
