Second person charged with murder in Lancaster teen’s shooting death

Second arrest made in Lancaster homicide

LANCASTER, S.C. (WBTV) - A second person has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of a Lancaster teen.

The victim, identified as 19-year-old Jaquavious Quandarius Neeley of Rock Hill, was shot at a home off Carmel Road just after 3 p.m. Sunday. Deputies say they believe 17-year-old Jarod Keshun McNeil, also from Rock Hill, was driven to the home along with Neely and a juvenile, got out of the passenger seat with a rifle as Neely was walking up to the home and shot him while he was on the front porch.

McNeil then got back into the black Nissan Altima and was driven away from the scene. That Nissan was found a short time later and examined by investigators.

Warrants were obtained for McNeil for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Officials warned he should be considered armed and dangerous.

McNeil turned himself in to authorities in Alabama on Tuesday. On Thursday, he waived extradition and was brought back to Lancaster and booked into the Detention Center.

Investigators charged the alleged driver of the Nissan - 19-year-old Jonavan Hensley - was also arrested. He was originally charged with accessory after the fact of a felony, but that charge was upgraded to murder Thursday morning.
