A Bennettsville man faces several charges after a shooting at an apartment complex.
Members of the Bennettsville Police Department Detective Division arrested Calvonte Zimmerman, 21, on Monday for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, obstruction of justice, breach of peace, and discharging a firearm within the city limits of Bennettsville. 
According to Lt. Larry Turner, Zimmerman is alleged to have shot at an individual on Monday evening, while the individual was standing outside of an apartment complex.
Zimmerman was taken into custody at a residence in Darlington County several hours later by the Darlington County Sheriffs Office and Bennettsville Police Department without incident.
Zimmerman is currently incarcerated at the Marlboro County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing. 
Turner said at the time of the incident,  Zimmerman was out on bond for two attempted murder charges back in June of this year for a shooting that occurred in East Bennettsville. 
All parties are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. This is still an open and ongoing investigation.
