Two more charged in connection with homicide at Dorchester Co. apartment complex

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Two more people have been arrested following a deadly shooting last week at an apartment complex in Dorchester County.

Demacian Isreal Middleton, 19, and another 15-year-old male have both been charged with murder after Stacey Bradley was found dead at Archdale Forrest Apartments on May 30. Middleton was located and arrested on June 1, according to Dorchester County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tony Phinney.

Middleton and the 15-year-old bring the total number of people charged to four. Hannah Leigh Bortz, 17; and Matthew Raymond Zalenski, 18, were both charged with murder last week.

Middleton was in the car with the other three who drove to the complex to buy marijuana from Bradley, according to the affidavit. Witness statements and confessions from the other three suspects led to the apprehension of Bradley, the affidavit stated.

Deputies responded at 7:50 p.m. last Wednesday and found a deceased man, later identified as Bradley, outside the 114 building of Archdale Forest Apartments, in the area of Ironwood Trail near Dorchester Road.

Bradley's murder was the first one this year reported in unincorporated Dorchester County.
