Three people are dead and another wounded following a Saturday afternoon shooting outside a store in North Charleston.

According to the North Charleston Police Department, two people are in custody for shooting and killing the three men at the Cycle Gear store on Dorchester Road. 43-year-old Ronald Reid is charged with murder and 32-year-old Barry Stinson is charged with lynching by mob, second degree.

The Charleston County coroner's office identified the victims as Maurice Horry, 41, of Columbia, SC. Horry died at the scene. Theodore Waymyers Jr., 36, of Summerville was transported to MUSC where he later died. Carlos Davis, 39, of Columbia, SC was also transported to MUSC where he was pronounced dead. All three men died of gunshot wounds.

"At this time investigators have learned that some type of altercation occurred between several people in the parking lot of the business when shots were fired. One gunshot victim died on scene and two others died en route to MUSC. A fourth victim was treated by EMS for a non life threatening gunshot wound," North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.

A manager of Cycle Gear said a physical fight started inside the store but then moved outside of the building. The manager stayed on the phone with first responders while other people inside took cover when the fight began to escalate. After the shooting, he said several people gave the victims CPR while EMS was en route.

The manager said those involved in the fight were people he recognized as having been in the store before. He does believe that this was an isolated incident but didn't know what started the fight.

Police said this incident is still under investigation and additional arrests are possible.

Reid and Stinson are expected to appear in bond court Monday morning.

    Almost a decade of quiet Mount Pleasant business life for Dr. Thomas Mirabile changed Tuesday when a man on a bicycle stuck his head into his optometry office. "Two hours later he returned and had his gun over [the front counter] and proceeded to cock it and ask for our money box. I handed him the money box and he took up the tray and dashed out the door with my wife in hot pursuit. For her protection, I went after her," Mirabile explained.
