Toomer extradited back from VA, charged with first-degree murder in Clancy shooting
Nearly a month after a deadly shooting at Clancy Hills Apartments, the Salisbury man charged with killing Eric Feamster is in the Rowan County jail.
Kevin Rashee Toomer, 24, of Fairmont Avenue, is charged with first-degree murder in the July 28 shooting. Feamster was shot multiple times in the chest and died at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center.
Toomer was arrested Aug. 16 in Richmond, Va., and returned to Salisbury on Wednesday.
Witnesses told the Salisbury Post there were several shots fired that morning into a group of people outside the complex. Tyson Gaymon, 25, who was also shot, survived. He was struck in the torso and arm.
Gaymon was found lying in the breezeway and Feamster was in a nearby apartment.
Witnesses said they saw a tall man with dreadlocks point a gun at a man in the group of people.
An off-duty Salisbury Police officer was at the complex working security when he heard the gunshots.
Toomer remains in the county jail without bond.
A Rowan judge set a bond of $14,000 for possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana as well as possession of firearm by felon, and Salisbury Police issued an arrest warrant for misdemeanor assault on a female, which carries a $1,000 bond.
Toomer was convicted in 2006 of possession of stolen goods and receiving stolen goods.
In August 2011, Toomer was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill after he fired a handgun into a Fisher Street home a month earlier. He was also charged with firing into an occupied dwelling in that incident. The 2011 matter has not been resolved and Toomer is expected in court next month.
