4 more charged in shooting that killed man and unborn child in Greenwood
GREENWOOD, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Greenwood Police announced that four more suspects were recently charged in a shooting that left a man and an unborn child dead in late December.
Officers said 20-year-old Yoshira Martin, 20-year-old Jalen Whitt, 19-year-old Onjayla Wiggins and a 16-year-old teenager were all recently taken into custody and charged with the following.
- Two counts of attempted murder
- Three counts of Attempted Murder
- Accessory After the Fact of Murder
The shooting took place at the Cardinal Glenn Apartments on Parkway just after 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 20, 2022.
Officials said 24-year-old Gabriel Goode was trying to get into a car, but while he was walking to the car, Goode was approached by the suspects. According to officials, Goode then got into an altercation with the group and shots were fired. Deputies said through their investigation, they discovered that three of the suspects fired shots from three separate guns. One of the shots reportedly hit Goode in the leg, and a stray bullet hit a woman sitting in the car.
Good was taken to the hospital for treatment but later died from his injuries. The woman was hit in the back and had non-life-threatening injuries. However, she was nine months pregnant, and sadly, her unborn child died following the incident.
21-year-old Javier Williams and 20-year-old Kevontae Mykel Hill were also charged with murder following the shooting. Williams was taken into custody in December, and Hill was taken into custody last week.
“This kind of activity is not acceptable and will not be tolerated in our community,” Greenwood Police Chief TJ Chaudoin said. “Our department will continue to prosecute anyone who has any kind of involvement in these violent acts.” At this time, we cannot release any further details about this incident.
