Bond deferred on final suspect in Eutawville murder

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - An Orangeburg County Magistrate has deferred bond on Dwendell High, 24, to a circuit court judge during a hearing on July 28.

High is charged with murder, attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and also failure to stop for a blue light.

The Summerville man turned himself in late Wednesday.

Deputies responded to a property on Craig Street around noon on July 19 to investigate a report of a shooting.

When they arrived, they found one woman dead and learned a man had been taken to a hospital for treatment of what was said to be a gunshot wound, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office spokesman Richard Walker.

Witnesses told deputies several men in a black vehicle drove up and spoke with a man in a group of people at the scene. As the vehicle began to leave, occupants in the vehicle began firing multiple weapons at the group, killing the woman and injuring the man, Walker said.

High is believed to have driven the vehicle involved.

Four others, Za'Quan Markel Taste, 18, Treshawn Markeese Jenkins, 22, Matthew Kamin Brown, 20, and Frank Jemerrl Jarzman Smoot, 20, were taken into custody last week. Each of the men are facing a murder charge related to the shooting.
