Man arrested in South Carolina motel room shooting death


NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – A suspect has been arrested in the death of a man found shot to death in a South Carolina motel room.

North Charleston police say 19-year-old Daniel Reed was arrested Sunday on charges including murder. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.

Officers say they responded to a North Charleston Rodeway Inn on Saturday after a man was found shot inside a room. The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has identified the man as 31-year-old Jesse Weathers of Mount Pleasant.

Reed ran from police they pulled him over but was ultimately arrested. Police say admitted to being involved in the shooting and discarding a handgun, which officers later recovered.
