Longs man charged with attempted murder in vehicle shooting

Horry County police charged a Longs man after officers were called for gunshots being fired at a vehicle, according to a police report.

Lee Livingston, 27, was charged with attempted murder and unlawful possession of a pistol and booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 839 a.m. Monday, according to jail records. Livingston was released at 6:58 p.m. Monday on $6,000 bail.

A caller alerted police that he saw a man jump out of a car and shoot at another vehicle between 8 and 9:30 p.m. May 3 in the area of Pine Needle Drive and S.C. 9 Bypass, according to the report.

Officers were called by Livingston to an address on Geranium Road, where he reported that he was at a business on Freemont Road when a 23-year-old woman pulled out her handgun and pointed it at him and a 23-year-old woman, according to the report. Livingston then said the woman followed him to the vehicle.

Officers saw the woman drive by and stopped her, according to the report. The woman told police that she argued with Livingston at the business and he fired several shots at her in her vehicle.

Officers found a bullet on the driver’s side floorboard and several rounds in a purse behind the driver’s seat, according to the report. A bullet was also found in the trunk, but no holes were in the car.

A witness told police that Livingston and the woman argued and they were separated and left in opposite directions, according to the report. The officer wrote in the report that follow-up interviews were planned before the case was presented to a magistrate.
