Sumter teen charged with attempted murder out on bond

A Sumter teenage charged with attempted murder is out of jail on bond.

17-year-old Dominik Dingle turned himself in Thursday. Surveillance cameras caught Dingle shooting at a vehicle in the south side of Sumter.

A judge set Dingle's bond at $105,000 and said he must wear a GPS tracking device.

The shooting was the 9th shooting incident in that area of Sumter since January. No one has been seriously injured and no other arrests have been made.

Sumter police are increasing patrols to try and put an end to the crime in the area.

"It's heartbreaking because I grew up here in Sumter and there were times when you could go anywhere and do just about anything and didn't have to fear for your life," said Captain Jeffery Jackson, with the Sumter Police Department.

Police are working with area churches, hoping congregation members will have information on the shootings. Police are also having an increased presence in the area.

"For the next few days, were going to be doing roadblocks, foot patrols, and other proactive measures to try and ease fears of the southside community," explained Jackson. "What we're looking for is individuals with weapons and guns. People that are traveling to and from this area that are committing crimes have to get here one of three ways, by bicycle, by foot, or by vehicle."

Police believe the shootings are not random, but at this point, don't have enough information to make any arrests.

Dingle's crime was caught on a camera at his mother's home. Like the other 8 shootings, no one was injured, but police say it's only a matter of time until someone is hurt or killed.

Anyone with information about the shootings can call the police department at 436-2700 or Crime Stoppers at 436-2718.
