A 40-year-old Line Street man was charged Thursday with trying to carjack a man who then shot him on the East Side last weekend.

Police say Vincent Clark and several others jumped in the man's Nissan Xterra after he stopped to ask directions at Sheppard and Nassau streets. Clark is accused of punching the motorist, Ryan Smith, in the face, Charleston police said.

Smith, 27, grabbed a .25-caliber pistol from his glove compartment and shot Clark in the chest. Police determined Smith acted in self-defense and did not charge him in the incident.
Clark, however, was charged Thursday with attempted carjacking. He appeared in bond court in a wheelchair, but stood for his hearing.

He had been charged Saturday with robbing at knifepoint another lost motorist seeking directions in the same area July 9, police said.

In addition, he was charged Thursday with selling 0.2 of a gram of imitation crack cocaine to undercover Charleston police on June 20 at Lee and Meeting streets.

Magistrate Jack Guedalia set bail on the two most recent charges at $120,000.
