According to the judge, Dickey was already out on bond on other violent charges at the time of the shooting. His next court date is May 6.

The name of the second suspect and his/her specific charges have not yet been released.

The community is mourning in the wake of the shooting.

“He’s dead, he’s not coming back,” William Robinson Jr., Bryan Robinson’s older brother, said.

The memories flood William Robinson Jr’s mind of his last times he saw his brother. Bryan Robinson was one of the men killed in the shooting.

“He was my baby brother. He wasn’t a guy to ever bother anyone, he was taught not start trouble, not to even look for trouble. With that being said, we’ve got to push through this,” William Robinson said.

He said Bryan lived in Hartsville his entire life and this loss hits close to home for so many people in this community and that gun violence has to end.

“It’s ridiculous. I’m sick of it. I’m done with it. I think we just need to come to the table- we’ve talked about this again and again and again,” William Robinson said.

The shooting also killed Dicaprio Collins and left four others in the hospital. The injured victims are recovering McLeod Darlington Medical Center and Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center.

Chris Skipper said Mac’s has always been a popular place in Hartsville and this will not stop him from going back.

“I think Hartsville is going to pull together as a community, it’s not going to deter me from going there,” Skipper said.

WIS reached out to Mac’s. We haven’t heard anything about their plans to reopen.
