Details that emerged Monday painted contrasting images of the man accused in Friday’s shooting spree.
Lakim Anthony Faust, 23, faced attempted murder charges as a teen, was denied a permit to purchase a handgun in August and was banned from Pitt Community College for disciplinary problems. However, local organizations where he worked and volunteered described him as a polite person who liked to lend a helping hand.
Faust used a shotgun to shoot one man about 11:40 a.m. Friday in the parking lot of Kellum Law Firm, Greenville police reported.
