Many thankful for the quick arrests made following Summerville shooting

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Less than three hours after 51-year-old Luther Woody Cribb III, of Ladson, was shot and killed at a Summerville Kangaroo station, Berkeley County Sheriff's deputies arrested three men in connection to the crime.

On Monday morning, bond was denied for 26-year-old Davon Washington for the murder charge.

His bond was set at $50,000 for both possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime and unlawful possession of a handgun.

Bond was set at $50,000 for 32-year-old Marquez Jorome Brown, of North Charleston, for accessory after the fact of murder. 35-year-old Ramon Gamble was arrested on unrelated charges, and is facing charges for warrants in another jurisdiction.

Berkley County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a person of interest in connection with the crime.

"I have a very high bar set for everyone here at the sheriff's office and they met it," said Sheriff Duane Lewis.

Sheriff Lewis has only been on the job for seven weeks and says catching suspects quickly, like this, is now the expectation for his department.

"We're not where I want us to be, by any means, but we're working everyday," said Sheriff Lewis.

Now, he says, in this case and several others, they're working to bring the people responsible to justice.

He said with the help of surveillance video, information from witnesses and surrounding agencies, deputies were able to make arrests quickly.

A Trident Technical College Public Safety Officer observed the vehicle in the area of Tipson Street in North Charleston and notified authorities. Officers with the North Charleston Police Department as well as deputies from the Charleston and Berkeley County Sheriff's Offices responded and apprehended the occupants of the vehicle.

People pumping gas at the Kangaroo Monday, located at 1571 Highway 17A, said the shooting was tragic, but they weren't shocked that it happened.

"It's crazy, you don't know what's going on in South Carolina now-a-days," said Lavell Joyner, "We've got to change, get together, stick together and stay strong."
Sheriff Lewis agreed, change needs to come, the violence needs to stop and law enforcement's job is far from over.
