GREENVILLE, N.C.(AP/CBS Charlotte) A man who shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart in June picked out his victims because they were white, according to several indictments handed down against him.
Lakim Faust had more than 100 rounds of ammunition when he started shooting at people who were standing outside at a law firm and a shopping center in June, authorities said.
A grand jury indicted Faust on 14 charges Monday, including four counts of attempted first-degree murder.
Faust, who is black, picked out his victims based on their race, according to the indictments. The documents didnt specify why Faust wanted to shoot white people, and police have not talked about why he picked out his targets. Earlier reports had indicated that Faust was shooting indiscriminately.
Police said Fausts first victim on June 21 was an insurance adjustor in the parking lot of a law firm. He then crossed a five-lane highway and shot three more people in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart, investigators said.
Three of the four people wounded in the shooting suffered permanent and debilitating injuries, according to the indictments. Details of those injuries were not specified.
Faust, 23, was shot by police. He recovered and is now in jail.
Police seized computers and documents from Fausts home that showed he had a plan for the attack and wanted to shoot a large number of people, investigators said.

"He recovered and is now in jail."
The victims ought to each get free shots at Faust.
An eye for an eye.

Its a damned shame he was given a chance to recover. Did those cops train in Columbus?
