A South Charleston man accused of attempting to rob an apartment and shooting at officers with a semi-automatic rifle in August will face trial in December.
Tyquan Antonio Livermon, 20, of Inland Lane, was arraigned by Kanawha Circuit Judge Tod Kaufman Thursday afternoon on charges of armed robbery, burglary, attempted murder and wanton endangerment. A grand jury indicted him on those charges in October.
Livermon pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.
South Charleston police were called to an apartment in the Southmoor Hills Apartment complex near South Charleston High School Aug. 8 to investigate a reported armed robbery.
The suspect, later identified as Livermon, fired at officers when they arrived, though it wasn't immediately clear if the officers returned fire.
The shooter fled, and officers searched for him for two days. The search of an apartment in Southmoor Hills on Aug. 10 turned up Livermon and an SKS rifle, according to newspaper archives.
Livermon has been at South Central Regional Jail since his arrest. His bond initially was set at $50,000 cash. Kaufman said the bond would remain the same.
Livermon's trial will begin Dec. 18.
