BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Police in Beaufort have made an arrest in the shooting death earlier this week of a St. Helena man in the parking lot of a recreation center.

Police say that 19-year-old Detuan Jenkins was shot and killed Monday night.

Local media outlets report that 18-year-old Thomas Caron was arrested at a home on Lady’s Island early Wednesday. Caron is charged with murder. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.

Police said earlier that witnesses heard Jenkins arguing with someone before a shot was fired.

Police say the men knew each other.
