Police Make Arrest In Rickshaw Taxi Shooting

Police say they've made an arrest in the robbery and shooting of a rickshaw taxi driver two weeks ago on a Greenville street.

Marcus Harris of Greenville is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault by pointing a gun, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Damien Lovett, an employee of Peddlin' Pirates, was shot the night of October 15th on Rotary Street.

Lovett was shot in his thigh, according to an owner of the business. The 33-year-old Greenville man was shot with a .45 caliber gun, with the bullet exiting his leg.

The owner says they first tried to rob his driver and didn't get any money. He said a few minutes later after the driver had peddled home, the same vehicle came by and fired multiple shots.

Police say there's another suspect in the case and more charges are expected.
