Sumter County man, 21, faces 4 attempted murder charges after 'multiple rounds' fired into home


A 21-year-old man faces four counts of attempted murder after he was arrested this week in connection to multiple rounds being shot into a residence near the city.

Ronnie Dewayne Smith, of Camden Highway on the way to Dalzell, was arrested on June 20, according to Ken Bell, public information officer for Sumter County Sheriff's Office.

According to four separate arrest warrants, Smith is accused of discharging "multiple rounds at or into the residence occupied by several residents" on June 17 on Holloway Street, which is just southeast of the Sumter city limits.

Smith's address is 11 miles away from where the incident took place.

"Witnesses have provided law enforcement information that the defendant was in possession of a gun just prior to and after the incident," the warrants state.

According to public inmate data, Smith is being held at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center without bond.
