Police have made another arrest connected to a November 2015 shooting that left one person dead.

Damonte Rashaun Withers, 27, of Charlotte, is in lockup at the York County Detention Center, having been extradited from North Carolina and charged with murder and criminal conspiracy. Withers also faces charges of financial transaction card fraud and possession of a stolen pistol.

Withers is the fourth person to face charges after shots were fired at a home on Scoggins Street last Nov. 29. The shooting killed 21-year-old Antravious White and injured another person. Police have called the case a “complex,” multi-person homicide that is still netting arrests months later.

When gunshots rang out around 5:30 p.m. the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, neighbors on Scoggins Street said they initially thought someone was setting off fireworks.

White died of his injuries at the scene, and the other victim was taken to a Charlotte hospital for treatment.

Rock Hill police arrested Davon Sharif Thompson, 22, and Arquivius Lee McClee, 22, Jan. 13 after a traffic stop on Heckle Boulevard, charging both men with attempted murder, armed robbery and kidnapping in relation to the shooting. (The kidnapping charge resulted from one of the victims being held against her will inside the home, police have said.)

Just days later, Deandre Howze, 21, of Charlotte, was also taken into custody, on Jan. 16, and charged with murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and criminal conspiracy.

McClee and Thompson are being held without bond at the York County Detention Center, and Howze faces a $10,000 bond. Withers had no bond listed Sunday on the detention center website.

A fifth man police have connected to the shooting remains at large. LaDaniel Reid is wanted on charges of armed robbery, kidnapping and attempted murder and is considered “armed and dangerous,” say police.
