--- Previous Story ---

The man accused of randomly shooting four people in Greenville last month has been moved out of Pitt County.

Lakim Faust was booked in Central Prison in Raleigh the evening of July 5th.

A Pitt County judge ordered he go there for safekeeping. Inmates are usually booked for that reason because of their medical conditions or security reasons.

Police originally arraigned Faust in his hospital room at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, a few days after they shot him on Hooker Road.

Faust is being held on a $6-million dollar bond.

He faces four attempted murder charges for the shooting spree that started in the Kellum Law Firm parking lot, moved into the Walmart parking lot, and ended on Hooker Road.
