A Cordova man is accused of threatening to shoot and kill his girlfriend.

Lyntavius Onqua Mack, 21, of 212 Kim Street, has been charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and unlawful carrying of a pistol. Officers also cited Mack for simple possession of marijuana and illegal transportation of alcoholic liquor.

Mack also has an address of 500 Fletcher Street at St. Paul Apartments.

He remains jailed without bond at the Orangeburg County Detention Center.

According to warrants, Mack went to a woman’s residence at Glenfield Apartments on Sunday “beating on the door threatening to kill her by shooting her.”

The warrant also alleges that Mack sent her text messages before and after he knocked on her door, threatening to shoot her.

In one of the messages he allegedly sent her, Mack videoed himself pointing the gun at the camera, the warrant states.

Orangeburg Department of Public Safety officers located him a short time later “wearing the same clothing as in the video with the gun and with the gun in his possession,” the warrant states.

A Ruger P945 .45-caliber pistol was “protruding from his front left pants pocket,” a warrant states.

An incident report states that prior to arresting Mack, officers searched him and found the following items in his stocking cap: three partially smoked marijuana cigars, a $1 bill containing 1.5 grams of a green/brown leafy substance and a $10 bill containing a white powdery substance.

In one of his pockets, officers found a clear baggie containing an off-white powder and three multi-colored tablets.

The incident report alleges that Mack admitted that the off-white powder was “molly,” the tablets were ecstasy and the leafy substance was marijuana.

A search of his vehicle yielded a magazine for the pistol that contained six rounds of .45-caliber ammunition, a box of .45-caliber ammunition containing 42 rounds, a “Digitz” digital scale with a white powdery substance and an opened bottle of Hennessey liquor.

If convicted of domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, Mack faces up to 20 years in prison.
