CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

One of the suspects accused of robbing and killing a popular North Charleston bartender in April is now in custody. 

 According to the Charleston County website, Jahmal Green was booked at 6:16 Sunday morning. Officials say Charleston Police arrested him for an unrelated crime.

The arrest comes about a month after Green was identified as a suspect in the murder of Eric Brantley.

Community members in Park Circle are relieved that police have arrested the final suspect accused in the shooting death of Brantley.

Park Circle resident Ryan Hobby says he didn't know Brantley personally but the entire community cares. 

"It's really sad that it happened but it's really taken an impact on everybody, he's been at large for so long you wonder everyday if this guy is going to be caught," Hobby said. "I thank God that guy was taken off the street."

On April 20, police say Brantley was shot and killed while leaving a shift at The Sparrow in Park Circle. 

Right across the street sits Stems & Skins. It's co-owner Justin Croxall was friends with Brantley.

"Around the neighborhood there is definitely some relief for sure," Croxall said. "Everyone is definitely happy that there's a sense of justice you know is going to be served."

According to an affidavit, surveillance video shows Murphy and an accomplice coming out of a white Dodge Durango and firing multiple shots at the victim, killing him before leaving the scene. Police arrested De'Andre Murphy in connection to the incident. Murphy is charged with murder, armed robbery and possession of a firearm in a violent crime.

Green is expected to have a bond hearing Monday morning.

Police arrested two women they say were also in that vehicle. Detectives say Victoria Deas drove the vehicle while London Maybank was a passenger. Police charged them with accessory to murder.

Croxall says police have had a larger presence in the area since the murder.

 "I think it has made everyone feel a little bit more at ease especially up until now," Croxall said.
