One held in shooting of child, 4, near Lamar


The Darlington County Sheriff’s Office has arrested one person in connection with the April 11 wounding of a 4-year-old near Lamar who apparently shot himself accidentally while playing with a gun someone left out. Chardon D’Aubre Green of Lamar is charged with unlawful neglect of a child or helpless person, obstructing justice and possession of 1 ounce or less of marijuana or 10 grams or less of hash, according to reports. Green apparently took the child to a Florence hospital, where staffers called law enforcement. Green is accused of falsely telling Florence officers the child was shot in Florence. Condition of the child, who reportedly was shot in the head, was not publicly available.
