Greenwood police have charged a resident in connection with a drive-by shooting last month.

The department formally charged Isaiah Adams, 26, 1000 Aven Ave., Apt 7H, with one count of drive-by shooting and two counts of attempted aggravated assault on police officers Tuesday night, Chief Ray Moore said.

Each charge has a bond of $50,000 for a total of $150,000. Adams was still behind bars as of Wednesday evening.

Police responded to a 10 p.m. call April 29 about a drive-by shooting on Elm Street, Moore said. Officers found Adams shooting at a victim when they arrived, and soon Adams began firing at the officers, Moore said.

“Thank God, nobody was hit,” he said.

Adams was able to evade officers for a short period of time before being apprehended, Moore said. He had since been held while investigators worked to charge him officially.
