GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) - Three men have been arrested for murder in connection to the shooting death of a 26-year-old man in Plantersville.

The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office charged 21-year-old Camron Lamar Green, 31-year-old Lavern Holmes and 17-year-old Tamar Yaron Bryant with the murder of Deon Myers.  This comes after the arrests of 24-year-old Kawaun Montique Myers and 19-year-old Brandon Tahj Cheek.

According to investigators, three unknown males wearing masks went into the "Ghost Den" Club on 2001 Jackson Village Rd. on March 15. Witnesses say one of the men appeared to have a shotgun and Myers was then taken outside by the men.

Once outside, witnesses told authorities that they heard a single gunshot. The suspects then fled the area.

Myers was transported the Georgetown Memorial Hospital for treatment and later transported to MUSC. He was pronounced dead Friday as a result of his injuries from the shooting.

Cheek was charged on Monday after he was arrested by police for unrelated charges, while Kawaun Montique Myers was arrested at his home on Wednesday.

Bryant was Friday morning at the Budget Inn Motel in Georgetown after sheriff's deputies say they received a tip and searched for him throughout the city of Georgetown.  A police report states that Bryant was not a guest at the Budget Inn and finally surrendered after continuing to attempt to elude sheriff's deputies.
