CHARLESTON, S.C. – Three men are dead, another person was hospitalized and two men are due in court today on charges related to a brawl that started at the counter of Cycle Gear in North Charleston and erupted in gunfire as it spilled out into the parking lot.
One man is charged with murder and another is charged with second-degree lynching by mob, generally defined as an act of violence by two or more people against another person.
“My heart really goes out to those people who were affected, our customers, their families. Right now there are families who are missing people,” store manager Stan Foxworthy told the Charleston Post and Courier.
The three men killed were Theodore Waymyers Jr., 36, of Summerville, and Maurice Horry, 41, and Carlos Davis, 39, both of Columbia, according to the Charleston County Coroner’s Office.
A fourth person was shot and suffered wounds not believed to be life threatening, North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.
The shooting happened June 28 about an hour after a youth group had finished a car wash fundraiser in the same parking lot.
