A young man is awaiting surgery after being shot in the hip and “stomped” by four suspects outside Club Ventura in Shaw on Oct. 12.

LaPlose Thompson, aka Corky, 19, Tavarius Murray, aka Rell, 21, Leon Hughes, 19, and Fitzgerald Roy, aka Lidell, 21, have all been charged with aggravated assault.

According to Shaw Police Anthony Gibson, they were each given a $50,000 bond.

Gibson said the victim, whose name is being withheld, told him he was approached by the four subjects “and asked for something. He said he didn’t have anything and they patted his pockets.”

Gibson said a scuffle ensued and the victim was shot in the hip and then stomped on by the other men.

“We want people to visit our city and socialize but we will not tolerate mayhem in our community,” said Gibson. “This is a growing community and people need to obey the law.”
