POLICE: Most Dangerous Man In Greenville Captured

Police say he's considered one of the most dangerous men in Greenville and now Cameron Whichard is behind bars.

The 19-year-old Whichard has been charged with Saturday's shooting of Carl Howard. The man was shot in the mouth while in the backyard of his McClellan Street home.

Chief William Anderson says Whichard is a known member of the Bloods gang and was out on bond when Howard was shot.

Anderson says his officers have been dealing with Whichard since he was 15-years-old. Police say the man now has three different shooting cases against him with five different victims.

Whichard had previously been arrested for the December 27th shooting of a 14-year-old on Norcott Circle and a robbery earlier that month that happened at the corner of Pitt and Wyatt Streets.

He was arrested Tuesday at his home after a Crime Stoppers tip. Whichard is in jail under a $1.165 million bond.

    Really, does someone actually believe that "no sin is greater than another"? So littering is the same as murder? That makes no sense!

    TO AGREE: I LOVE your idea. Wish I had thought of it.

    Just a couple thoughts...if WE really don't know him or what's going on with the case, we really shouldn't be making any assumptions. Lets just consider how many innocent people there are in jail/prison. To Chelsey, stay strong--he's going to need you whether he's guilty or innocent. Let's all keep in mind that: NO SIN IS GREATER THAN ANOTHER!

    I would love nothing more than to send these useless gang members to Afghanistan. We are sending educated men and women to fight a war against a country with a "gang mentality". If congress had any testicles, which I doubt is possible, they would send these "gang members" to war. In lieu of a prison sentence for gang members, let them fight our war! Personally, I would like to see the likes of Cameron Whichard in the front lines in Afghanistan rather than someone who has spent their entire life achieving to be an educated citizen. Just a thought. Does anyone agree with me?

    Yes Chelsea, I'm sure this is all a big conspiracy. Have you ever heard of John Wayne Gacy? Everyone said he was a great guy till they found bodies buried under his house. Get away from this low life and make something out of your self.

    To Chelsey, How do you know he didn't do it? Have the police already questioned you about it? If so, then he has an alibi.
