HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A man who committed an armed robbery which resulted in himself being shot eight times by his victim has been arrested and charged by Horry County Police, according to a press release from the Horry County Police Department.

The incident occurred on September 28 at 4632 Factory Stores Boulevard in Horry County.

Richmond Clayton-Isaiah Collier, 18, has been charged with two counts of armed robbery, attempted murder, two counts of weapons/pointing and presenting firearms at a person, two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime, unlawful carrying of pistol, and malicious/malicious injury to animals.

According to arrest warrants, Collier robbed the victim at gunpoint. During the incident, the suspect fired one shot at a vehicle door that he was behind and continued to pull the trigger but due to a malfunction, he only fired one shot. The victim possessed a conceal weapons permit and began firing at Collier, shooting him eight times.

Warrants also reveal several charges related to what appears to be a separate armed robbery on the same day on nearby Southern Pines Drive. Collier allegedly pointed a handgun at a man and took his cell phone after he found out the man didn't have any money. WMBF News has reached out to Horry County Police for more details on that incident.

Collier is currently being held at the Horry County Detention Center.
