Bond set for suspect outside Ashley Hall carrying loaded gun

Posted: Updated:

A judge set bond for the woman arrested outside of Ashley Hall who carried a loaded gun outside Ashley Hall Monday.

28-year-old Alice Boland is being held on $500,000 for the attempted murder charge, and a total of $400,000 for two counts of pointing of a firearm, unlawful carrying of a firearm and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

In court, Boland questioned why she was charged with attempted murder and told the judge that "the gun didn't even work."

Boland said she lives in Beaufort with her parents who were in the courtroom, but declined to comment.

On Monday, Boland pointed a handgun at someone outside the school. Boland was standing at the carpool lane armed with a semi-automatic pistol loaded with 8 bullets, according to police.

Police received a call about 3:22 p.m. Monday about a woman in front of the school at 172 Rutledge Avenue who was armed with a handgun. The woman then reportedly pointed the handgun at an Ashley Hall School official who was on the sidewalk near the Rutledge Avenue entrance of the school. The school official went back on campus and told someone in the personnel office to call the police.

Police officers arrived on scene within minutes and detained the suspect on Rutledge Avenue.
