The Lexington County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Sunday 24-year-old Jonathan Qunitell Johnson of Lexington is charged with first-degree domestic violence involving his live-in girlfriend.
Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said deputies responded to the house about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. During the standoff, Koon said Johnson showed a firearm and threatened to harm himself.
Koon also said the victim pleaded with Johnson until she was able to get out of the house and get help.
Johnson is being held at the Lexington County jail under $105,000 bond. Online records didn’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
