Two Colleton County men face charges in a shooting death earlier this year outside a Summerville-area apartment complex, sheriff’s deputies said Monday.

Justin Roberts, 34, was shot several times March 17 outside his home at the Haven Oaks apartments on Orangeburg Road. He lived at the home with his three small children and his girlfriend.

Javonte Laron Johnson, 23, of Pynes Community Road in Green Pond faces charges of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Joshua Manigault, 29, of Edgewood Street in Walterboro faces a charge of being an accessory after murder.

Both men were already incarcerated on other charges. Manigault is in the Colleton County jail, and Johnson is at a state prison facility.
