Investigators with the North Charleston Police Department say they have arrested a second suspect in a teenager's fatal shooting in North Charleston.

Authorities charged 27-year-old Michael Montrez Nelson with murder and attempted murder.

Nelson surrendered to police Thursday night at the Charleston County Detention Center. Maurice Nathaniel Aiken, who was arrested last week, also faces the same charges.

On May 31 around 2:15 p.m., police responded to the 5,000 block of Delta Street in reference to a possible shooting.

When an officer arrived on the scene, he was flagged down by several people who were pointing towards a person on the ground in front of an apartment. EMS then arrived on scene and pronounced the victim, 18-year-old Demetrius Robinson, deceased.

Police say they also discovered that a 26-year-old man was also injured in the shooting. He was shot in the upper left shoulder and transported to a local hospital. 

According to police, the shooting incident may have stemmed from an earlier shooting.
