Arrest made in connection with Tabor Street shooting

The Greenwood Police Department has made an arrest in connection with Saturday night’s shooting on Tabor Street that left a 15-year-old Columbia teen dead and four others wounded.

Investigators with the Greenwood Police Department say they have arrested 17-year-old Dayterrious Shyheem White, of 334 Carolina Ave. in Greenwood, and charged him with murder in connection with the slaying.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, officers were booking two female prisoners at about 9:45 p.m. Saturday night when they heard between 20 and 25 gunshots. Immediately after that, two males came around the corner of the jail, one of which had been shot in the arm. Officers went over to Tabor Street where they saw a large crowd gathered around the body of a young black male, later identified by Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox as 15-year-old Malik Birshon Padgett, of Columbia, who later succumbed to his injuries. One of the people around Padgett was performing chest compressions, the report said.

According to the report, officers called for a trauma unit, but some of the people at the scene picked Padgett up and put him in the back of a police car at which point he was taken to Self Regional Medical Center for treatment. It was later discovered that the ambulance that was en route to the scene was involved in a collision with another vehicle at the intersection of E. Creswell Avenue and Edgefield Street. A total of four other people were shot and wounded during the incident.

Officials with the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office said that they were called to assist in the incident, which included dispatching several deputies to the hospital. Officials said that the hospital had been put on lock down after a large crowd of people gathered at the emergency room. The crowd was calmed down and dispersed peacefully, officials said.

Investigators learned that the incident occurred at a large gathering for a birthday party. Investigators believe that White and an unknown number of other assailants approached the gathering and opened fire, killing Padgett and wounding the other four victims.

White is charged with murder in connection with the incident. He is currently being held at the Greenwood County Detention Center. A circuit court judge must set White’s bond since the crime of which he is accused could result in a life sentence or the death penalty. A date for his bond hearing has not been set.

An intervention is needed and quickly. So often, we become comfortable in the confinds of our four walls. We think oh, well it is not me and mines nor do it have anything to do with us. People, we must step up and step out of what is comfortable to us to an uncomfortable zone and help change one child life as a time. If we change one life just like the negativity caught on, something positive can do the same thing. We are losing a generation of kids that could be our future, doctors, lawyers, teachers etc. Our prayers are desperately needed but FAITH without WORKS is DEAD! We must put our ideals and works in ACTION! We need a mentorship program established. Let's get together as a Community to build and change lives of our children. As adults, we are not getting any younger, this is our future that's been endangered.

We dont know how this kid was raised or who raised him. Some of these kids could be raised by descent family but all it takes is for them to start hanging around the wrong type of people. I have a 2yr boy. I come from a good background as do my husband. I was raised by a single mother. I was raised well. I am trying to raise my son as well as i have been raised with the same, if not better values. I pray that when he grows up he will make the right decisions in life. I will do my best to keep him on the right path. The way some of these kids are these days, it just seem like they are getting worse and worse. I'm worried about my son's future with people like this in the world. People with total disregard for life. I dont want him to get hurt or die at the hands of someone like that. I will pray for all involved. There is too much evil in this world. Too much hatred and craziness. Just pure evil. It starts at home, seeps into the community and spreads all over. People really need to get right with the Lord. When it's your time, where are you going?

The parent didn't lose this child to the system the parent is likely to blame for not raising this child to respect others.
