Man arrested on disorderly charges after Charleston Memorial Day shooting, recited | news

A man accused of disorderly conduct at the scene of the Memorial Day mass shooting on Charleston’s East Side has been subpoenaed for the same offense this week after a confrontation with city police outside a Meeting Street store.

Maurice Malloy, 35, received three summonses on June 16 for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and a drug and narcotics violation after police said he caused a riot at the Family Dollar on the East Side.

A police officer stopped Malloy after he reportedly took a wrong turn.

During the stop, Officer Hunter Lewis Mills reported noticing marijuana in the car and told Malloy he likely had reason to search his vehicle. At that point, Malloy reportedly got “angry,” refusing to get out of his car and calling several friends, telling them to come over to Family Dollar.

A crowd of 20 to 25 people gathered, CPD spokeswoman Beth Wolfsen said. At least 14 police units were called to respond to the crowd, although Wolfsen did not know if all units arrived.

Officers pulled Malloy from his car after he continued to refuse to get out, the incident report said. While he was handcuffing him, a bandage came off Malloy’s little finger, which had been injured by a bullet in the May 30 mass shooting on South Street.

When paramedics arrived to treat Malloy’s hand, he tried to lead the officers but fell to the ground and injured his left shoulder, police said.

Records say he was taken to the Medical University of South Carolina for an evaluation.

Police issued subpoenas for Malloy instead of arresting him because he was given drugs at the hospital to calm him down, Wolfsen said. According to Wolfsen, none of those called by Malloy were subpoenaed or arrested.

The Memorial Day shooting left 10 people injured after more than 100 people attended an unauthorized party on a vacant lot, Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds previously told The Post and Courier.

Several suspects were arrested in connection with the shooting, including Del’Javon Simmons, who was charged with five counts of attempted murder.

Simmons, 31, remains in the Charleston County Jail without bond.

Malloy was arrested for misdemeanor the morning after the shooting. He later posted bail.

The Post Office and Courier were unable to contact a Malloy representative.

Court hearings on Malloy’s recent subpoenas are not yet scheduled.
