Two suspects wanted in a Glenns Bay Road shooting that sent one man to the hospital Sept. 6 are now in custody.
The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation arrested 19-year-old Timothy Wayne Daggs of Greenville, N.C., and 25-year-old Timothy Devon Rouse of Myrtle Beach in Pitt County, N.C., on Sept. 12. The two were extradited back to Conway Wednesday, where they are being held at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
Daggs and Rouse have each been charged with armed robbery, attempted murder and possessing a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
An officer was driving down Glenns Bay Road at 11:53 a.m. Sept. 6 when he was flagged down by a construction worker near Evergreen Circle. The witness told police he saw a PT Cruiser-like vehicle leaving the parking lot of a cluster of townhouses on Glenns Bay Road and that he “heard shots fired as the vehicle was leaving.”
The vehicle took off towards U.S. 17 Bypass, the witness said.
The officer saw a man bleeding and beckoning him for help in the parking lot and went to investigate. The man told police he had been shot, according to the report.
A neighbor, who lived a few doors down, said he heard a man yelling, “He shot me in the head!”
The man was transported to Grand Strand Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses told police at the scene that “multiple males came into the residence (at 1410 Glenns Bay Road) and started shooting,” according to the report. Two of the victims reported the suspects stole money that was on a table.
One of the victims told police that he had invited the suspects to his residence to “hang out” and that they had been there a short period of time when the shooting occurred, according to the report.
The shooting sparked a five-hour manhunt for four suspects through the Deerfield Plantation, a gated community off of Dick Pond Road, after witnesses reported finding a disabled and abandoned vehicle on Lakeview Circle.
The vehicle, a dark blue Chevrolet HHR, matched the description of the SUV a witness saw leaving a townhouse on Glenns Bay Road in a hail of bullets.
