Summerville man killed in bike shop shooting

  • Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Theodore Waymyers Jr., 36, of Summerville, formerly of Neeses, died Saturday, along with two others in a shootout at Cycle Gear, at 4400 Dorchester Road, in North Charleston.
Maurice Horry, 41, and Carlos Davis, 39, both of Columbia were also killed. A fourth person was shot and suffered wounds not believed to be lifethreatening, North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.
Arrested early Sunday were Ronald Reid, 43, of Summerville, who is charged with murder, and Barry Stinson, 32, of Rock Hill, who is charged with second-degree lynching by mob.
They were being held Sunday in the Charleston County jail.
According to The Post and Courier, just prior to the shootings, a group of young people had finished a car wash in the same parking lot.
Store manager Stan Foxworthy lamented that he knew Waymyers’ bike better than he knew the man.
“I know he came to our bike nights, I know he was having trouble with tire wear…I didn’t know him very well.”
Foxworthy said “I had just been in the parking lot looking at the front tire of his [Suzuki] Hayabisa and had gone back into the store to get him a tire when the [shooting] started.”
Arrangements for Waymyers are with Jackson’s Memorial Chapel of Neeses and can be found at www.jacksonsmemorialchapel.com.
