A Greenwood man charged in last year's Tabor Street shooting that left a Columbia teen dead and four others wounded sought to have his bond reduced Monday during a hearing at Greenwood County Courthouse.
Circuit Court Judge Frank Addy presided over the hearing and elected to take his decision under advisement, ordering attorneys on both sides to gather more information before he renders his ruling.


Jason Aiken, 26, of 209 W. Creswell Ave., faces charges of murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and five counts of attempted murder in connection with the April 6 shooting. He was arrested June 5 and has remained in jail awaiting trial on the charges.
Addy presided over an August bond hearing for Aiken, during which he set his bail at $200,000. Aiken's attorney beckoned the court to reduce that order to $100,000 or less Monday, indicating his family is unable to pay a $200,000 bond.
