The fourth man arrested in the killing of a Clemson University student has been charged with murder.

Spartanburg CBS affiliate WSPA is reporting that the Pickens County Sheriff's Office got a tip that 18 year old Lester Moseley Jr. was staying at a motel in Toccoa, Georgia. Deputies from several agencies found Mosley at the motel and took him into custody.

Mosley was denied bond at a hearing Saturday, December 22, 2012.

Sheriff's deputies in South Carolina have arrested three other men in the murder of 23-year-old Steven Gregory Grich, of Fort Mill.

Authorities say Grich was killed when a group of masked men broke into his off-campus house at the Chimney Ridge complex in Central, South Carolina and shot him.

19-year-old Jordan Charles Dalton, 25-year-old Jaron Bradley Dalton, and 19-year-old Bernard Kedeen Ramsey are all charged with Murder, Armed Robbery, Burglary 1st degree and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Deputies say the masked group came into Grich's home through an unlocked back door.

Six other people were in the home at the time of the incident. None of them were seriously injured.

Pickens County Assistant Sheriff Tim Morgan says he does not expect to make any other arrests in Grich's death.

SLIDESHOW: Deputies investigate student's death

Police are looking for a fourth suspect and have issued warrants for the arrest of 18-year-old Lester Devaria Mosley, Junior.

Mosley is considered armed and dangerous. 

Assistant Sheriff Tim Morgan said information they got early on Monday morning led investigators to Bernard Ramsey. Deeper investigation implicated the Daltons' and Mosley.

According to investigators, both Dalton brothers voluntarily came to the Law Enforcement Center around 5:00 pm Monday night to speak with investigators.

A black Durango that was caught on tape leaving the gated-community was located and has been impounded.

"The intent of the group was to rob the [Grich's] roommate of what they believed to be a large amount of marijuana," Morgan told WBTV on Monday night. "Only a few grams were actually taken."

During the investigation into the deadly shooting, deputies arrested Grich's roommate, Robert McKinley, on drug charges.

While searching the house where this shooting happened, deputies say they found pot on McKinley.

According to WYFF News, an investigator on the case told them that McKinley was selling drugs out of the home.

"[Grich's death] ruins several lives, but not only this Christmas, but every Christmas to come for that family," Morgan said. "You feel terrible for them."

The shooting has also sparked changes in the gated-community where the shooting happened.

The management company has lifted a ban that prevented law enforcement deputies from patrolling the upscale neighborhood.

Pickens County Assistant Sheriff Tim Morgan says a previous management company had served a "no trespassing warning" to deputies, preventing them from entering the Chimney Ridge community unless they were specifically called by a resident.

Morgan told WSPA News that investigators are unsure how the suspects got into the neighborhood, or whether they were given the security code for the gate.

"It's one of those places where I think every student at Clemson might have access to that code," he said.

By late Sunday, a Facebook memorial page had dozens of posts from family and friends expressing condolences and sharing memories.

Grich was apparently a lover of science and music. One post read, "So sweet, so incredibly charming."

Neighbors met with Grich's family at his home in Fort Mill on Sunday. Many neighbors were still visibly upset about the news. A man who answered the door told WBTV some family members remain at Clemson.

Grich was a sophomore studying electrical engineering.

"We are so sad about this sudden loss of one of our students," said Dean of Students Joy Smith. "The death of a young person is always a tragedy, but it is especially so at this time of year. We will support his family and friends and other students during this difficult time."

WEB EXTRA: Leave your condolences

A sophomore Electrical Engineering student at Clemson University, Steven was incredibly intellectual and creative. His passion was music and its creation and the effect that music could have on a person's state of mind. He loved creating music for himself and sharing his creations with others.

A visitation will be held Wednesday December 12th from 6-9pm at Palmetto Funeral Home in Fort Mill.  The service is open to the public.

Funeral Services will be held Thursday December 13th at 2pm at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, which is also in Fort Mill.

Memorials may be made to The Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) PO Box 7557 Wilmington, DE 19803, online at or by phone at 1-800-939-1019.
