June 5, 2018

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Four more people have been arrested in the shooting death of a teen near a South Carolina church.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department said Monday the latest four suspects are charged as accessories in the May 10 shooting of 17-year-old Amon Rice in Hopkins. Rice died May 12 in a Columbia hospital.

Thirty-nine-year-old Sandarrell Davenport, 40-year-old Alphonso Squire, 21-year-old Mikoyah Harvin and a 17-year-old were all arrested last week. There was no record of an attorney for them.

A woman and her three children already had been arrested.

Shytori Davenport was arrested shortly after Rice was found and was charged with murder, as was Winyah Gaither.

Kieauna Davenport and Kerria Davenport are charged as accessories.

Investigators say the shooting occurred at a meeting that was supposed to settle a dispute.
