     A third suspect, the second adult, has been charged in a Dec. 9 shooting in Tabor City that left Whiteville resident Tabitha Reaves, 21, critically injured, a news release from Columbus County Sheriff Jody Greene Monday afternoon said.

     Stephon Lee Miller, 23, was arrested at his home on Hinson Park Drive, Tabor City on Monday.

     Miller faces the same charges as Allegrianna Rena Johnson of Loris, who was arrested last week, three counts each of attempted first degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and with single counts of assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

     Miller was held under a $650,000 secured bond.

     Investigators are still working on the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Paul Rockenbach at 910-770-2145 or the sheriff’s office at 910-653-6551.
