A man who reportedly crashed a family gathering armed with a high-powered pistol was arrested during the weekend.
Bobby Lukie, 35, of 315 Ashcroft Drive, Greenwood, was charged Friday with pointing and presenting a firearm at a person and first-degree burglary in connection with the incident.
Officers responded to a house along Old Sample Street late the night of July 2 after reports a weapon was drawn there. According to a Greenwood County incident report:
The victim told officers he was sitting in the living room of the home visiting family, and the suspect entered the home carrying a Mac 10. The man said he'd had problems with the suspect in the past, and immediately got up and ran out of the back door into a wooded area behind the house, thinking the gunman was going to kill him. Several witnesses said a family member knocked on the door, and when partygoers opened the door for that man, the suspect entered the home behind him. According to witnesses, the gunman chased after the victim until the homeowner yelled for him to leave the house. That's when the suspect and the family member left the house and drove away from the scene.
