NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police say he was shot in the early-morning hours of April 20.

On Friday, North Charleston Police issued arrest warrants for murder against Deandre Murphy and Jahmal Green

According to an affidavit, surveillance video showed Green and Murphy coming out of a white Dodge Durango and firing multiple shots at Brantley, who was found near his motorcycle in a parking lot on East Montague Avenue.

Also on Friday, police arrested two 20-year-old women, Victoria Deas, who investigators say drove the vehicle; and London Maybank, who they say was a passenger. A judge denied bond for Deas and Maybank, who face charges of being accessories to the crime after the fact.

Friends described Brantley on social media as "warm, sarcastic, loving and honest."

As news broke of the shooting, flowers and a toy motorcycle were being placed outside The Sparrow, where Brantley worked as a bartender. 

Dispatchers say officers responded to a call at 7:27 a.m. Wednesday about a body spotted in the parking lot. Earlier that morning, at approximately 3:32 a.m., dispatchers had received a call reporting gunshots had been heard in the area.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Murphy and Green should contact North Charleston Police at (843) 554-5700, or Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111.
