CHARLESTON, SC -

Charleston Police arrested two additional suspects in the June 14 homicide of a West Ashley man.

William Luck and Christopher Taliaferro are both charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Both suspects were being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center.

According to documents, when police arrived to the Ashley Oaks Apartments on June 14, they found Juwan Reid with a gunshot wound to the back of the neck. Officers found $300 and a small amount of marijuana on Reid.

Reid died as a result of those injuries on June 20.

During the investigation, police spoke with a witness who said the victim robbed one of the suspects Deontre Pierce,  at gunpoint prior to the shooting. According to the affidavit, the witness was standing next to the victim the night of the deadly shooting when Pierce and an unidentified person walked up.

The witness said Pierce told the victim to give him his "stuff" back before two shots were fired. After the shooting, the suspect and an unidentified person fled the scene.

Charleston Police previously arrested Deontre Jerrell Pierce and charged him with murder.

According to court documents, police interviewed Pierce on Saturday, who said the victim robbed him of $300 and a small amount of marijuana.
