Indictment: Greenville shooter picked out whites

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

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 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 didn't specify why Faust wanted to shoot white people, and police have not talked about why he picked out his targets.
    
Police said Faust's 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 Faust's home that showed he had a plan for the attack and wanted to shoot a large number of people, investigators said.
