CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A second man is in custody in connection with the shooting death of a man at a Read Street apartment on Wednesday morning, according to police.

Deantre Maybank, 26, is charged with murder, kidnapping and possession of weapon during the commission of a crime, according to North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor.

Maybank was arrested at a West Ashley apartment complex Friday without incident, Pryor said. 

At his bond hearing, the murder and kidnapping charges in relation to Read Street will go to circuit court. He is being held on a $25,000 surety bond for marijuana possession with intent to distribute..

His arrest comes the day after the arrest of a 16-year-old who authorities say will be charged as an adult. Marcus Abdul Spann, Jr., of North Charleston, was also charged with murder, kidnapping and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to court records. 

Bond was denied for Spann Friday morning.

Officers responded to the Read Street Apartments in North Charleston Wednesday after a deadly shooting just before 7 a.m., Pryor said.

Court papers say the 16-year-old and other suspects ransacked the victim's apartment after binding the his hands and feet. Investigators say the victim, later identified as 42-year-old Draco Istan Ali Ben Walker, was shot once inside the apartment before freeing one hand and managing to make it outside. They say he was then shot several times more outside of the apartment.

According to court affidavits one of the rounds hit Walker in the middle of his throat.

According to an incident report, officers found Walker Iying face-down with his wrists tied together with a shirt and his ankles tied with a belt. A bed sheet was used to tie his wrists and ankles together, the report states.  

Investigators say the motive appeared to be robbery and they continue to investigate.
