NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - North Charleston police have made additional arrests in the drive-by shooting death of a mother of three on Mother’s Day.

Police tell local media outlets that 20-year-old Richard Simmons of North Charleston was arrested Friday night.

He’s charged with murder, four counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. It was not known if he had an attorney.

Authorities allege Simmons was one of several people in a vehicle from which shots were fired that killed 36-year-old Kedena Brown. Police think the shooters mistook her car for another that had earlier been involved in a shootout with them.

A 15-year-old juvenile was earlier charged with murder and other counts while a 24-year-old woman is charged with providing misleading statements to police.
