Nine are injured at restaurant after 14 were hurt during shoot-out at mall. An arrest has been made in mall incident.
As Sacramento, California, recovers from last weekend’s mass shooting incident in the downtown area, South Carolina has been hit by two separate mass shooting incidents within 24 hours.
At least nine people were wounded in a shooting at a restaurant in South Carolina on Sunday — the second mass shooting in the Palmetto State in as many days.
The shooting occurred Sunday morning at Cara’s Lounge Furman in rural Hampton County, about 50 miles northwest of Savannah, according to the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division, WTLX reported.
No deaths have been reported at this time, cops confirmed.
It’s not immediately clear what led to the shooting. Law enforcement has not released any further information.
The shooting is the second mass shooting over Easter Weekend. On Saturday, 14 people were injured after two shooters opened fire at the Columbiana Centre mall in Columbia.
Police have arrested a suspect in the mall shooting.
Police have arrested a suspect in the “horrific” mass shooting at a South Carolina shopping mall that injured 14 and sent panicked customers fleeing for their lives, according to authorities.
Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook revealed late Saturday that Jewayne M. Price — a 22-year-old who was one of three people initially detained by law enforcement — has been arrested in the Easter weekend violence.
He was charged with the unlawful carrying of a pistol, the police department announced on Twitter on Sunday morning. He may be slapped with more charges, the Columbia Police Department added in a press release.
The Columbia Police Department (CPD) report indicates that the mall incident was likely the result of an “ongoing conflict.”
Jewayne M. Price who was initially detained by law enforcement as a person of interest remains in police custody. Price will be charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. CPD is in consultation with the 11th Circuit Solicitor’s Office; additional charges may be forthcoming. Two additional males who were also detained for questioning have been released from police custody after it was determined that they were not involved in the shooting.
After speaking with witnesses and reviewing surveillance video, CPD investigators believe that at least three suspects displayed firearms inside the mall. CPD is working to determine how many suspects discharged firearms, thus injuring multiple people.
CPD investigators have seized one firearm related to the incident. Preliminary examination of ballistic evidence collected from the scene indicates that at least two different firearms were used by two suspects.
It is believed that the shooting was an isolated incident between the suspects and likely stemmed from an on-going conflict.

The judge has set bail….and Price can go to work with a leg monitor.
A South Carolina judge set a $25,000 bond for a suspect in a mall shooting on Saturday that left 14 people injured, according to the Columbia Police Department.
Jewayne Price, 22, will be on house arrest but allowed to travel to and from work while wearing an ankle monitor if he posts bond.
The restaurant incident occurred during an “Easter Bash” that featured exotic dancers.
The nine victims were shot at Cara’s Lounge in the small town of Furman.
The shooting happened while the venue hosted an ‘Easter Bash’ featuring exotic dancers and live music, according to an event flier posted on Facebook.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is leading the investigation. There are no reported fatalities.
…There have been no reported fatalities in Sunday’s shooting in Furman, which has a population of 224 people. The closest city is Savannah, Georgia, about 46 mi away.
A flier for the event promoted the ‘litty’ bash, which required masks, as a party with exotic dancers and a DJ. It said the party started at 9pm but did not specify an end time.
Here is an image of the flier for the “bash,” which I am sure was the scene of solemn reflection on the Resurrection of Christ.
I wonder how quickly these stories will be buried by the media, as neither incident supports the media’s preferred narrative on mass shootings and those who do them.DONATE
