COLUMBIA — A Columbia man has been charged as an accessory in the shooting death of a high school student.
Terry Eugene Myers, 39, was arrested about a mile from the scene where 17-year-old Santerrica Johnson was shot late Tuesday morning. She died a short time later at Palmetto Health Richland Hospital.
Deputy Police Chief Rueben Santiago says investigators think Johnson was an innocent bystander. Police say a dispute involving two men with Johnson turned violent and she was shot.
Santiago says more charges are expected. Police have not found the gun.
Richland District 1 spokeswoman Karen York said a crisis response team would be at Dreher High School on Wednesday.
