CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Police in Charleston have charged two men in the shooting death of a 19-year-old in what investigators say is a drug deal that went bad.

Area media outlets report Charleston County Deputy Coroner Brittney Martin said 19-year-old Jarrod Howard of Hanahan died from a gunshot wound.

Authorities said the shooting occurred Friday afternoon, adding that neither the victims nor the suspect were residents of the area.

Police said 19-year-old Ahshaad Mykiel Owens and 20-year-old Phillip Daniel Jewell II are each charged with murder and armed robbery. Owens is also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

The two are being held in the county jail, where records didn’t say whether either man had an attorney.
