Five people are in jail accused of taking part in a Walterboro murder.

Police say that shortly before the shooting, the victim 24-year-old Stephon Young and five others got into an argument Saturday night.

Officers found Young lying on the ground and he was pronounced dead on the scene.

"On call investigators and SLED were notified and responded. Upon further investigation, they learned that shortly before the incident, Young and Errol Jackson met on Francis Street near Crosby Street with Desmond D. Kirkland, Lorenzo L. Helton, Marquay C. Brown, and Joey D. Coleman. An altercation ensued and the victim was shot. All parties departed the area," Walterboro Public Safety spokesperson Elizabeth Boineau said.

"Jackson returned to the scene a short time later, where he was detained and taken to Walterboro Public Safety for questioning. He was charged with Obstruction of Justice for tampering with evidence," Boineau said.

The four others were later arrested and charged with murder.
