Two teenagers are accused of fatally shooting a man who stopped to help them get a vehicle out of a ditch late Monday in North Charleston.
The Charleston County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Chadwick Garrett, a 45-year-old North Charleston resident. He died around 11:35 p.m. at the scene near Durant Avenue and North Jimtown Drive.
Deon Antonio Frasier, 17, and Michael Odell Anthony Dupree-Tyler, 19 — both of the Reserve at Ashley River Apartments, 6520 Dorchester Road — face murder charges in connection with the shooting. Frasier is also charged with possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
A magistrate judge could not set bail on the charges at a bond hearing Tuesday night.
Arrest affidavits state that around 11 p.m. Monday, Garrett agreed to help the teens pull a 2016 Dodge Durango out of a ditch for $20. A witness, who is not named in the documents, told North Charleston police that after he removed the vehicle from the ditch and inquired about the money owed, Frasier pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots.
