Sumter County Sheriff's Office arrested Gerquell Harris, 17, and Mario Lloyd, 26, on Thursday and Friday, respectively, without incident.
Lloyd, of East Newberry Street, is charged with murder, attempted armed robbery and conspiracy; and Harris, of Olive Street, is charged with conspiracy, accessory to attempted armed robbery and obstruction of justice, according to a news release.
“This was a terrible crime, and there is no reason for it to have happened,” Sheriff Anthony Dennis said.
The tireless efforts of the investigations team resulted in these arrests, he said.
“We are confident that these are the two men responsible,” he said.
However, the investigation is ongoing, Dennis said, and there could be other arrests.
Harris and Lloyd are both being held in Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center, where they will have first appearance hearings at 2 p.m. today.
Bonds will be set by a circuit court judge at a later date.
