Four Bonneau residents were charged Thursday in connection with a shooting in Goose Creek that sent a 21-year-old man to the hospital, authorities said.
Charged by the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office with criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and attempted murder are Barbara Leanne Dolloff and Kelsey Mixon-Riles, both 17; Andrew David Sartin, 20; and Michael Brandon Whetsell, 19. All live together on Minnow Lane.
According to an incident report, Dustin P. Mahaffey of Goose Creek was found lying in the grass in front of Devon Forest Elementary School about 8 p.m. Monday. He had been shot in the left leg, and his lip was cut.
Mahaffey told a deputy that Mixon-Riles had picked him up at his home in a grey Chevrolet. He became suspicious, saying that he thought he was being "set up," the report said.
Mahaffey told the deputy that the car stopped around St. James Avenue. Dolloff approached it and opened the trunk, letting Whetsell out, he said. Mahaffey said he tried to get away but Sartin approached him with a pistol.
Mahaffey said Sartin shot him in the leg and Whetsell hit him in the mouth with the butt of a shotgun, the report said. He then began to run toward Dorothy Street and heard gunfire from the pistol and shotgun.
Mahaffey also was arrested. He was booked on charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, obtaining signature under false pretenses and receiving stolen goods, according to sheriff's spokesman Dan Moon.
Sartin and Whetsell both also face a charge of possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Additionally, Whetsell is charged with possession of a sawed-off shotgun. Sartin faces a charge of unlawful possession of a handgun.
