Woman charged with six counts of attempted murder, three men sought in Loris shooting

A 30-year old woman, one of three suspects in a shooting incident earlier this month in Loris, is facing charges related to shots being fired at a home where three adults and three young children were inside.

Amanda Jo Hardee of Tabor City, N.C., surrendered to police Wednesday to face charges of first-degree burglary, six counts of attempted murder, discharging a firearm into a dwelling and malicious injury to personal property with a value over $1,000, but less than $5,000, police said.

Her bail was set Thursday at $115,000 on all of the charges and she remained jailed at J. Reuben Long Detention Center as of 12:30 p.m., according to jail records.

An investigation into a shooting about 4:30 a.m. Aug. 9 at 4644 Watson St., resulted in Hardee and three men being identified as suspects, Loris Police Chief Joe Vaught said. Loris police are working with North Carolina authorities to locate the other suspects, and more arrests could result as an investigation continues.

When police arrived at the home that day they found that the front door had been forced open and they found multiple bullet holes to the front of the house, according to the report. Two men, a woman and three children ages 11, 7 and two were inside the house at the time of the incident.

One man, who suffered a gunshot wound to his right arm, was treated at McLeod Loris Hospital and released later that day.

In addition to Hardee, officers have identified the two other suspects and have issued warrants for their arrests. Those suspects are David Kadeem Hemingway, also known as Frog, 20; Dustin Stackhouse, also known as Ryan, Black and Zachary, 27; and Xaviar Rashawn Hemingway, also known as Ray Ray, 17, all of Tabor City, according to the report.

If you have any information about the men’s whereabouts, you can call Loris Police at 756-4001.
