Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) reports responding to a domestic dispute in Inwood at approximately 10 a.m. January 30.

A female hiding in her bedroom closet told a 911 operator that her ex-boyfriend had broken into her home and was possibly armed.

While waiting for deputies the frightened woman located a handgun and fired at the bedroom door as her ex-boyfriend attempted to force his way in.

The man was not hit but did retreat from the door.

Deputies arrived and took 28-year-old Khareem Joyner of Woodbridge Virginia into custody without incident.

Joyner has been charged with one count of burglary with additional charges pending.

Anyone with any information on either Joyner or this incident is asked to call the BCSO at 304-267-7000.

As a reminder many 911 communications centers now have the capability of accepting text.

Should you be in a situation where you are unable to talk simply text a message.
