Greenville Shooting Spree Suspect On Camera For First Time


For the first time since his arrest, the suspect in last summer's Greenville shooting spree has appeared on camera.

Lakim Faust appeared in a courtroom at the Pitt County Detention Center this morning.

He is accused in the June 21st shooting spree in front of the Kellum Law Firm and across the street at Walmart.

A grand jury indictment said the shooting was racially motivated. All four victims were white men, while Faust is black.

Faust was seriously wounded by Greenville police after they confronted him on Hooker Road.

Until today, most of Faust's court appearances have been in secured locations, away from the media. He is being kept at Central Prison in Raleigh while awaiting trial.

The brief administrative hearing this morning set his trial date for January 20th of next year.
