Bond set at $550,000 for Edisto club shooting suspect

EDISTO ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A 20-year-old man suspected of shooting five people at a club on Edisto Island was given a $550,000 bond in a Charleston County court Wednesday.

Authorities charged Everett Rashad Duffy with five counts of attempted murder. Duffy was arrested at the Hollywood Town Hall Tuesday afternoon.

On Wednesday, a bond court judge gave Duffy a $500,000 bond for attempted murder and a $50,000 bond for possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Charleston County sheriff's deputies say a fight that broke out at the Pit Club early Saturday morning led to five people being shot. Authorities say the shooting was an escalation of a fight which started inside the club.

According to investigators, four males and a female were shot after a disturbance call was received around 4:40 a.m. Deputies responded to 1467 Hwy 174 and found four victims still on site with bullet wounds.

Deputies observed wounds on the female victim's face from the shooting. She could not talk and was transported to the hospital. Casings were found in the road outside the club.

The victims were transported by EMS to Roper St. Francis hospital and MUSC. A fifth victim had left the scene and was transported to Roper St. Francis in a private vehicle. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
