Columbia, South Carolina: Fourteen people were injured when a gunman opened fire at a shopping mall on April 16. Police say nine of the 14 people were shot and the other five people suffered injuries in a “stampede” of bystanders running for safety. The police chief said that the shooting was not random, but stemmed from “some kind of conflict” among a group of armed individuals who knew each other. Jewayne M. Price, 22, was arrested and charged with the unlawful carrying of a pistol; more charges may be added later. Jewayne could be released if he can post the $25,000 bond, allowing him to be under house arrest and to go to work while wearing an ankle monitor. Jewayne was charged in 2018 as an accessory before the fact in the murder of a high school student, Amon Rice, who was shot in the chest when a group of people met in a church parking lot to settle an argument.

The suspect in Saturday’s South Carolina mall shooting could be released on a $25,000 bond, the Columbia Police Department announced Sunday.

Twenty-two-year-old Jewayne Price can go to work while wearing an ankle monitor but otherwise will be on house arrest should he post bond, according to police.

Price has been charged with unlawfully carrying a pistol, and further charges are pending following an evidence review by the prosecutor, Fox News reported.

Police arrested Price back in June of 2018 and charged him with accessory before the fact in the shooting of 17-year-old Amon Rice in Hopkins, South Carolina, Fox News reported.
