According to the Charleston Post and Courier:
Two teenagers were arrested today in connection with Saturday’s fatal shooting at Bridgeview Village apartments.
Cephus Mitchell, 18, of Charleston,
and Vashty West, 17, of Ladson,
are each charged with murder in the slaying of 28-year-old Jamar Gathers of North Charleston.
Vashty also is charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
They were being held in the Charleston County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing scheduled for Thursday.
Gathers was shot and killed about 4 p.m. in a breezeway at the apartment complex on North Romney Street.
But Cedar Posts notes that a little more than a year ago Mitchell was charged with rape and kidnapping. The Post and Courier's coverage is here.
Mitchell was later arrested by the US Marshals:
"Cephus Mitchell, 17, of Bryercliffe Drive, was arrested by US Marshals in a North Romney Street apartment. Mitchell was wanted by Charleston Police for three counts of armed robbery, criminal sexual conduct 1st degree, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and two counts of kidnapping. The charges stem from an incident that occurred about 3 a.m. Tuesday, June 16th on North Romney Street."
So why was this pile of human waste even out on the street? Maybe we should ask Scarlett Wilson? Or the Charleston County Courts?
