JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Bond was denied for a 20-year-old man suspected in a fatal shooting on Johns Island.

Denzel Marqui Heyward of North Charleston was denied bond on Thursday for the murder of Kadeem Ali Chambers. A judge also denied Heyward bond for an attempted murder and robbery charge.

Bond was set at $100,000 for a possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime charge.

Heyward is the third suspect arrested for the May 16 shooting. Members of the sheriff's office and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Heyward in North Charleston on Wednesday at 12:30 p.m.

Heyward was wanted for the shooting death of Chambers and beating up a teen on Cynthia Avenue on May 16.

On May 22, authorities arrested Dashaun Livaughn Simmons who faces the same charges as Heyward. The sheriff's office says Simmons turned himself in at the Al Cannon Detention Center.

Quansantrina Jaeureka Rivers was also arrested and charged on May 20 with accessory after the fact to murder, accessory after the fact to attempted murder and accessory after the fact to armed robbery.

According to the sheriff's office, investigators determined that Rivers drove Simmons and Heyward to the area near Cynthia Avenue prior to the shooting and assault. Investigators say she then waited for Simmons and Heyward to return from the scene before driving off.

The victims and the suspects had arranged to meet in the area prior to the shooting and assault, authorities say.
