ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Three people are behind bars after authorities say the trio helped a murder suspect leave the area.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office has charged 20-year-old Tsushima Yaki Berry, 47-year-old Shirley Elaine Berry and 30-year-old Stephanie Nicole Jenkins with accessory after the fact for a shooting on Maedrine Street on Sept. 10.

"Our investigation indicates Shirley Elaine Berry made arrangements to take her son, Terrance Shawan Johnson, to Mississippi five days after the shooting in Orangeburg," Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said." Berry traveled to Mississippi with her daughter, Tsushima, and a cousin, Stephanie, the weekend of September 14-16 to drop off her son."

According to Ravenell, Johnson was arrested in Pascagoula, Miss.

"We interviewed this mother several times regarding the whereabouts of her son and she consistently told us that she didn't know where he was," Ravenell said."Relatives and friends should take note when you protect criminals, you become one too."
