Bond set for second suspect in Coastal Grand Mall shooting, stabbing

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A bond hearing was held Monday afternoon for the second suspect charged in connection with a shooting and stabbing at Coastal Grand Mall earlier this month.

Online records from the Myrtle Beach Police Department state Dewayne Cumbee was charged Sept. 17 with attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a pistol.

The judge set a $105,000 surety bond for Cumbee on the three charges. His initial appearance date is Nov. 13 at 1 p.m.

Myrtle Beach police were called to Coastal Grand Mall on Sept. 8 for a fight, but that turned into a shooting and stabbing investigation. Authorities said two people were hurt.

Police also arrested 34-year-old Dionte Roddey White hours following the incident at Coastal Grand Mall. He faces two counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

During Cumbee’s bond hearing, a detective said the entire incident was captured on mall surveillance equipment. Cumbee was said to be the victim of a violent assault and was stabbed multiple times, according to law enforcement.

He then allegedly pulled a firearm from his waistband and chased White through the mall’s food court and into the parking lot, where he is said to have fired a round at the co-defendant while several people were outside, the detective stated.
