By Crandall Sims

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Thursday, Richland County Sheriff's Deputies arrested 22 year old Calip Canvater for Burglary and Attempted Murder.

According to deputies, Canvater broke into a home on Crane Church Road around 11:00 p.m. Wednesday.

Deputies say Canvater then waited in the home for the victim to arrive, that's when they say he attempted to fire his weapon at the victim. However, deputies say the gun jammed and Canvater then used the gun as a weapon to beat the victim about the head and body.

Canvater fled the scene, but was located Thursday by the Richland County Sheriff's Department's Fugitive Task Force.
