3 arrested in death of man found on SC road

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in the death of a man found on the side of a South Carolina road.

Multiple media outlets report Friday that 18-year-old Jimmy Darrell Gagum Jr. of Myrtle Beach has been charged with murder. Nineteen-year-old Shelton Manquell Brantley has been charged with accessory after the fact, and 19-year-old Michael Jerome Conner has been charged with misprision of a felony for knowing about a crime but lying to investigators. Both are from Conway.

Authorities say 21-year-old Edwin Donnell Salters of Myrtle Beach was shot in the head. His body was found early Wednesday on the side of a neighborhood road in Conway.

All three men were in jail Friday. It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys, and authorities expect more arrests.
