Man accused in card game shooting turns himself in to policeFrom staff reports
A 25-year-old Spartanburg man accused of shooting another man over accusations of cheating during a card game last week turned himself in Tuesday.
Capt. Randy Hardy of the Spartanburg Public Safety Department said Christopher Duran Geter of 690 Saxon Ave., turned himself in to the Spartanburg County Detention Facility at about 2 p.m. Tuesday. Geter is charged with attempted murder, discharging a firearm into a dwelling and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Hardy said arrest warrants also have been signed against Geter's brother, Al-Malik Geter, 23, of 684 Fairfax St., Spartanburg, in connection with last week's shooting incident, which occurred behind a residence on Howard Street. Al-Malik Geter faces a charge of accessory before the fact of attempted murder and remained at-large Tuesday night, Hardy said.
Officers responded to the intersection of Howard and Folsom streets at about 6 p.m. Thursday after 43-year-old Isaac Glenard Lyles showed up at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his right thigh.
Lyles told police he was playing cards when he accused Christopher Geter of cheating, grabbed his money and began to walk away. Lyles said he then heard five or six shots, but did not realize he had been struck until a friend told him he needed to go to the hospital.
