Judge sets bond for suspects in Irmo home invasion

December 31, 2017

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – A judge has set bonds for the two suspects that are accused of a home invasion near Irmo early Saturday morning. The judge set a $232,000 bond for Brandon Thompson. The Columbia resident has been charged with three counts of kidnapping, three counts of assault/battery, armed robbery, burglary, criminal conspiracy, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The judge has also set a $240,000 bond for Quintrell Morris. The Hopkins resident is charged with three counts of kidnapping, three counts of assault/battery, armed robbery, burglary, criminal conspiracy, pointing/presenting a firearm, and possessing a weapon during a violent crime.

 

Early Saturday morning, Thompson and Morris forced their way into a home near Irmo, assaulted the people in the home, which included children, and then one of them pointed a rifle at a deputy. The deputy fired at the suspect multiple times, but no one was hit in the exchange of gunfire. 

 

A spokesman for the sheriff’s department said yesterday afternoon, that the department didn’t think that the home was selected randomly. The investigation into the home invasion is continuing with the sheriff’s department as the lead agency. SLED is handling the investigation into the officer involved shooting.
