CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A man charged with murder will remain in jail.

Kendrel Jerome Brown of Jacksonboro was denied bond by a Charleston County judge Wednesday. He is accused of shooting and killing Kavares Brown at The Pit Club on Edisto Island on June 18.

According to the affidavit, detectives met with a witness who said, on the night of the incident, he watched a burgundy Buick pull up to an area near The Pit Club. Several men exited the car brandishing firearms and covering their faces with bandanas.

The group of people outside the club fled and the assailants started firing shots into the crowd. Kavares Brown, 29, was struck several times. Brown was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital.

The witness, through a photo line-up, was able to identify the driver of the vehicle as Kendrel Jerome Brown.
