Arrests made in fatal shooting

Five suspects face charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Joshua Goodman.

Four are in custody and police are continuing to look for the gunman, Jaelon Markell Jackson.

Jackson, 21, of 80 Brighton Hill Road, Apt. 1122, of Columbia, is wanted on charges of murder, attempted armed robbery, conspiracy and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

He is described as 6 feet 1 inch tall, about 150 lbs. and has tatooes on his neck and a teardrop tattoo under his right eye.

Officers have arrested the following:
– Shanice Octavia Bradley, 20, of 18 Wilson St., Sumter. She is charged with murder, attempted armed robbery and conspiracy.
– Diontre Brown, 18, of 1228 ½ Lorick Road, Blythwood. He is charged with murder, attempted armed robbery, conspiracy and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
– Dequan Lamont Washington, 21, of 422 N. Magnolia St., Sumter. He is charged with murder, attempted armed robbery and conspiracy.
– Joshua Smith Jr., 16, of 7 Virginia Drive, Sumter. He is being charged as an adult with accessory before the fact of armed robbery, accessory before the fact of murder and conspiracy.

Smith is being held at a state Department of Juvenile Justice facility. Bradley, Brown and Washington are being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.

Jackson, who is on probation, and Brown previously were involved together in a 2016 carjacking case in Richland County and pleaded guilty to strong armed robbery and weapons charges.

Police responded to a shots fired call at 1:45 p.m. Sunday and found Goodman wounded in the parking lot of a Peach Street apartment complex. He was taken to Palmetto Health Tuomey where he later died.

During the course of the investigation, it was determined that Goodman was meeting with the individuals involved in order to purchase a quantity of marijuana. However, the suspects instead plotted beforehand to rob the teen. Goodman and one of the suspects struggled briefly during the attempted robbery before he was shot by Jackson.

“This tragic, senseless death should serve as a reminder to those individuals attempting to purchase illegal substances of the potential dangers associated with their actions,” Chief Russell Roark III said. “The Sumter community has lost a young person —a family has lost a son — at the hands of a group of young people, ranging in age from 16 to 21 years olds, who now must face the consequences. No one should ever trivialize the potential long-term and far-reaching effects of illegal drugs on all of us and the future of our community. ”

Anyone with information about Jackson is asked to call the Sumter Police Department at (803) 436-2700. Information can also be given anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

A cash reward may be available for information leading to an arrest.

In addition to armed robbery, each were charged with conspiracy, attempted murder and weapons offenses.

 – Chase Nelson was sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder, attempted armed robbery, assault and battery-1st degree, five counts of armed robbery and five counts of criminal conspiracy.

 – Rahman was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to criminal conspiracy.

Chief Russell F. Roark III said many hours of hard work by officers and detectives coupled with support from the community helped to solve these cases and quell any anxieties the actions of these four men created among residents and businesses.

Police: Use caution at the pump; hidden skimmer devices found

It’s always wise to stay alert and pay attention to what’s going on around you.

However, you should also be on the look out for those things, in this case devices, that may not be obvious but can jeopardize your finances and personal information.

In recent weeks, a number of gas pump skimmer devices used to fraudently obtain credit/debit card account information have been found at businesses in the city. The most recent was earlier this week at a Broad Street convenience store where several were discovered during routine maintenance of the pumps.

Unlike some skimmer devices that are placed outside of the pump where you swipe your debit or credit cards, these pumps were opened and the skimmers attached inside where they aren’t easily detected.

As officers and detectives work to identify the person or persons responsible, there are some steps customers can take to protect themselves.
– You can’t go wrong with cash. However, if you have to use plastic, use a credit card and not a debit card that requires you to use a PIN (personal identification number). Remember that someone using stolen debit card information can do you more harm than with a credit card.
– Check for the pump’s security seal, usually a brightly colored strip of tape placed where the pump opens and closes. If it appears to be broken or tampered with, find another pump.
– Also, tug on the outer card reader before using. Don’t swipe if it is loose.
– Use pumps that are closest to the business and are more visible to employees.
– Check your banking information regularly to spot fraudulent activity. If you find a discrepancy, notify your bank or credit union immediately.

For more information or to report suspicious activity, contact the Sumter Police Department at (803) 436-2700.

Information can also be given anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers by logging onto www.P3tips.com and clicking on the “Submit a New Tip” tab or by downloading the new P3 Tips app for Apple and Android devices.
