    Police said the arrest warrant for Watts indicated Watts was at the scene at the time of the murder and helped Jackel Marquise Clinton by taking him away from the location of the shooting. 

    Watts is being held on a $40,000 bond and is custody at the York County Detention Center. 

    Authorities said they arrested and charged 22-year-old Clinton, of Lancaster early in the investigation. 

    Clinton was charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. 

    Officials said Clinton is being held at the Fort Mill Police Department and was denied bond on both charges.

    Fort Mill police responded to the scene on Sanders Street near Tom Hall Street after receiving multiple shots fired calls.

    According to police, an officer found a man lying in the street with a gun shot wound and tried to assist him, but the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

    "When I was growing up, you just fought with your fist and then go home. You might get cut, but you don't get shot to death," said neighbor Leonard Richard.

    "I haven't seen anything like this in Fort Mill," said Richard.

    Neighbors watched as detectives spent hours combing through the crime scene placing evidence markers on the ground. 

    "It hurts us, it hurts the neighborhood,"said Richard.

    Although neighbors are concerned, many of them were too afraid to speak on what they witnessed.

    Richard told Channel 9, "It's kind of crazy, but it is what it is. People are afraid for their lives."

     

    The entire area on Sanders Street near Tom Hall Street in Fort Mill is taped off as detectives investigate.

    Officials later identified the victim as 22-year-old De'mon Davis.

    Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Fort Mill Police Department at 803-547-2022, or Crimestoppers of York County at 877-409-4321.
