Two in custody after a vehicle pursuit, brief standoff in Blythewood

BLYTHEWOOD – Around 11:30 a.m. Monday, Richland County Sheriff’s deputies spotted a passenger in a vehicle who they recognized as the person wanted on two counts of attempted murder in connection with a shooting on Sept. 10, near the Spinx gas station located at 101 Lee Road.

When deputies attempted to stop the vehicle in which Shaheim Jackson, 23, was a passenger, the driver of the vehicle, identified as Jomonte Hill, 26, didn’t pull over. Instead, Hill led deputies on a chase, according to Sergeant Brittany Hart, Public Information Officer with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.

Hill ultimately came to a stop in the Windermere community of LongCreek Plantation where both men ran from the vehicle and into the home of an acquaintance on Cartgate Circle.

After a brief standoff with deputies, the men surrendered peacefully.

Jackson is charged with two counts of attempted murder.

Hill is charged with reckless driving and failure to stop for blue lights and siren.

Both men are booked into Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center. No further information is available at this time. The incident is continuing to be investigated by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.
