SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Bond has been set for a 25-year-old man accused in a shooting at a Summerville restaurant that took the life of a 25-year-old mother.

Gregory Anson Glenn Jr., who was charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the possession of a violent crime, received a $25,000 surety bond for the weapon offense and no bond for the murder.

Judge Vernida Hill presided over the bond hearing.

The Summerville Police Department officers with the assistance of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force took Glenn into custody in Charleston County Friday. He was locked up a the Dorchester County Detention Center.

The charges are in connection to the shooting death of Cassandra Smalls at Three Cafe on May 17.

Smalls was a mother of two boys, ages three and two.

The incident started when an officer responded to shots heard just after 11 p.m. and saw another officer trying to revive Smalls with CPR.

He also saw what appeared to be two gunshot wounds to the woman's chest and thigh, according to the incident report.

People who knew Smalls say she had big plans.

Sadly her life was cut short in the parking lot of  the Three Cafe' Seafood Bar and Grill.

Summerville police say employees and patrons inside the restaurant heard gunshots outside and hit the floor.

Investigators say two of those shots hit Smalls, killing her.

"This is my best friend since I was 12 years old, more like a sister more like anything else," said Beniqua Palmer.

According to the incident report, friends and officers tried to revive Smalls with CPR but couldn't save her.

"We're very distraught of course," Palmer said."We would just really like to know what's going on because we have just as much information as you have.We don't know anything."

"She's only 25," Palmer said."She didn't even get to see her babies start school for the first time."

The May 17 incident was the second shooting at the restaurant this year.

In January, someone fired shots into the building wounding a woman in the shoulder.
