SUMTER — A second man has been arrested in the shooting death of a South Carolina teacher.
Multiple media outlets reported that 27-year-old Frederick O'Neal Owens of Sumter was arrested late Monday afternoon.
Owens is accused in the shooting of 31-year-old Markeith Ford on May 19 during an apparent robbery. Ford died June 1 in a Columbia hospital. Owens is charged with murder, armed robbery and burglary.
Thirty-year-old Tony Mitchell Lowery turned himself in to sheriff's deputies on Sunday and is charged with murder and assault and battery.
Sumter County sheriff's deputies are looking for a third suspect they think fired the shot that resulted in Ford's death.
Ford's sister said he was teaching at a center in Sumter and previously taught at Beaufort High School.
It was unclear Tuesday if Owens and Ford had attorneys.
