Bond denied for suspected triggerman in fatal Summerville shooting

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Bond has been denied for the man charged in connection with a fatal shooting outside of a Summerville apartment complex.

Wayne Pinckney, 21, was charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, according to Summerville Police Lt. Nick Santanna.

Police responded Sunday night at approximately 8:39 p.m. to a report of a shooting at the Gates of Summerville Apartments in the 1200 block of Boonehill Road.

Police found a shooting victim in front of one of the buildings and say he was already dead when they arrived.

Shortly after police arrived on the scene, Pinckney was located and arrested, Santanna said.

A judge set a $100,000 surety bond on the weapon charge, but only a magistrate judge can set bond on a murder charge.

The identity of the victim has not yet been released.

Pinckney was being held at the Dorchester County Detention Center.
