June 7, 2019

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Five people have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a teenager last month in South Carolina.

Udeh Joshua “Prince” Osuagwu Jr. was shot during a robbery on May 11.

At a news conference Friday, Greenville Police Lt. Jason Rampey said two 17-year-old females and three men face charges including murder, armed robbery and conspiracy to commit a criminal act.

Rampey told news outlets a Facebook post led the group to 18-year-old Osuagwu’s apartment to rob him. Officials wouldn’t specify what the post entailed.

Outlets say the investigation is ongoing and more arrests could follow.

Greenville News reports that one of five arrested is 24-year-old Jaylan Horatio Marques Fair. He is also being charged in the January shooting death of 19-year-old William Ramirez.
