Berkeley County woman part of officer-involved shooting

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) — Bond was set at $200,000 Saturday for Vanessa Jo Bapp, who Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office deputies say was involved in an officer-involved shooting this week.

According to Sheriff Duane Lewis, Bapp was in the vehicle Thursday when someone inside fired shots at deputies attempting to make a traffic stop. The incident led to a high-speed chase and an hours-long manhunt.

Bapp and Johnson were wanted in connection to two stolen vehicles when deputies tried to stop them Thursday morning, the sheriff’s office says.

Both Bapp and Johnson were later arrested. Deputies say Johnson fired shots at them when they tried to arrest him hours later. No deputies were wounded in the shooting, but Johnson was, officials say.

Bapp has been charged with multiple crimes including second degree burglary and accessory after the fact to attempted murder.

Johnson remains hospitalized with no bond court date set at this time.
