Lexington man charged in shooting at Amazon facility

Lexington County deputies have arrested a man following a shooting Tuesday night in the Amazon Fulfillment Center parking lot in West Columbia.

Jonathan Harden Alique Walker, 20, is charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants.

“Walker and the shooting victim, who are both employed by Amazon, are linked socially in that they have mutual connections at work,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “There had been some conversations back and forth between the two of them last night.”

Walker shot a man multiple times in the parking lot after an argument and then left the scene, according to investigators. Koon said the shooting victim left the Amazon facility in a car after he was shot. Deputies and EMS personnel found the victim in a car a short distance away after the driver of the car called 911.

“EMS transported the man to the hospital,” Koon said. “He immediately went into surgery and, beyond that, we have no word on his condition.”

Deputies located Walker Wednesday morning at his home in Lexington. He was arrested and transported to the Lexington County Detention Center.
