NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators say they have made more arrests for the fatal shooting of a North Charleston bartender. 

NCPD authorities arrested Deandre Murphy in connection with the death of Eric Brantley. 

According to police, Murphy was arrested just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday at a home on Ottawa Street in North Charleston. 

North Charleston Police had issued arrest warrants for murder against Murphy and Jahmal Green

Authorities are still searching for Green. 

In addition, on Friday, police arrested two 20-year-old women, Victoria Deas, who investigators say drove the vehicle in the incident; 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 and family remembered Brantley on Tuesday at Riverfront Park where a memorial service was held for the 43-year-old man .

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

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.

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.
