GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - Agents with the U.S. Marshal’s Services have located a Georgetown murder suspect in Georgia.

Officials with the Georgetown Police Department said David Denon Tyrone Green was taken into custody outside of Augusta, Georgia and is awaiting extradition back to Georgetown.

Green was wanted for an Oct. 28 shooting at the Bethel Apartments on 1810 Gilbert St. that took the life of one man.

Police said Green fled South Carolina in an effort to avoid prosecution, and was entered into the National Crime Information Center as a wanted person.

Green is the latest person to be arrested in connection to the murder. Earlier this month, officers arrested Zavion Taheim Woodward who was charged with two counts of accessory before the fact to a felony.

Also arrested was Jerry Lee Williams who faces the same charges.

GPD investigators reported that a juvenile suspect has also been identified and charged in the case as well.
