Cherryvale mobile home shooting suspect extradited, denied bond

Posted

A man suspected in a shooting that injured two adults and a child in a Cherryvale mobile home was denied bond Thursday after being extradited from New York.

Nikeen D’Aundre Johnson, 26, attended his first appearance hearing at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center after being transported back to South Carolina to face four counts of attempted murder, according to Adrienne Sarvis, public information officer for the sheriff’s office.

Johnson and Kwodel Johnson are accused of entering a residence in the American Mobile Home Plaza off Broad Street in Cherryvale on Aug. 16 and firing at four people. One child was not injured. It appears from the investigation that the adults were acquainted and that the shooting happened during a verbal dispute that was initially calm.

Both Johnsons fled the area after the incident, Sarvis said. Kwodel Johnson was arrested in Orangeburg on Aug. 20, and Nikeen Johnson was detained by U.S. Marshals in New York on Sept. 12.
