A fourth man has been arrested in connection to a homicide that occurred in late February, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

James Maurieo Hunter, 32, was arrested in Florence, South Carolina, after detectives identified him as the fourth suspect in the case and obtained a murder warrant for his arrest.

SLED, along with the Florence County Sheriff's Office, located and arrested Hunter on Tuesday. Detectives went to Florence to interview and extradite him, but officials say there is no current timetable for his return to Mecklenburg County.

Ryan Kendell Andrews, 24, was arrested one day earlier and charged with murder after Homicide/ADW Detectives identified him as a third suspect in the February shooting.

The shooting happened just before 1 a.m. on February 25, on Wedgefield Drive. Officers responded to a report of shooting and found the victim, Ronny Eugene Steele, 57, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Steele was taken to Carolinas Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries.

Officers found 28-year-old Reuben Timothy Curry at CMC-Main shortly after the deadly shooting. He was suffering from a gunshot wound officers say he received during the incident.

Curry, who recovered from his injuries, was arrested and charged with murder.

On March 21, police arrested Charlie Edward Snowden, 29, and charged him with murder in connection to the case. Snowden was arrested in Florence County, SC.
