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.

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.
