Cops: Man drives golf cart into tractor, shoots at estranged wife's roommate

AWENDAW, SC (WCSC) -

A 71-year-old man is behind bars after police say he drove a golf cart into a tractor and fired a shotgun at his estranged wife's roommate in a neighborhood in Awendaw.

The Mount Pleasant Police Department charged Peter G. Cuming of Awendaw with attempted murder, criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and pointing a firearm.

He was given a $400,000 bond.

Cuming's arrest stems from an incident on Saturday at a neighborhood on Causey Pond Circle where officers responded to a report of shots fired.

The victim said it all started when she was driving with her roommate past her former home and saw Cuming, her estranged husband. Police say the victim noticed Cuming's dog beginning to follow her to her friend's home, so she walked the dog back to Cuming who was on a golf cart calling out for his dog.

According to the victim, the dog returned to her at her friend's home, and Cuming came with his golf cart and took the dog back on his golf cart.

At one point, the victim said she then got onto a tractor to help her friend clear out a nearby rental home.

Police say as the victim was driving the tractor to the home, Cuming "came out of nowhere" and ran his golf cart head-on into the tractor. According to police, Cuming then jumped off the golf cart, took out a "street sweeper" shotgun and pointed the weapon within two feet of the victim's face.

The victim said Cuming then asked her if she was ready to die because he was going to kill her. A police report states Cuming continued to yell that he was going to kill the victim.

Police say Cuming then started moving towards the victim's roommate while pointing the gun at him. The victim said Cuming then fired a shot at the roommate.

According to investigators, as the roommate was running, Cuming ran into him with his golf cart and fired another shot before the roommate was able to get inside a house.

The victim told police Cuming then went after her as she ran towards the woods.

The victim said she did not know how many shots were fired since everything was happening so quickly.
