North Charleston police arrested a man they said shot and killed another man during a dice game outside a community center two years ago.

Alouis "Vante" Levorge Taylor, 33, of North Charleston, who has been jailed for an unrelated matter since March, was charged with murder and being in possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Taylor shot Clay Crudup, 32, who lived on Leland Street, several times during a dice game on the night of Sept. 1, 2016, authorities said. Crudup had been visiting family in the Union Heights area.

Taylor is the second man to be arrested in Crudup's killing. Mario Rayshaad Archield, 33, of Arbutus Avenue, was arrested May 11 on a murder charge but made bail. He was arrested again Aug. 21 on a drug charge, jail records show.

According to an affidavit, Crudup was among a crowd of 15 to 20 people participating in a dice game outside of the Gethsemani Community Center at 2449 Beacon St.

Taylor approached Crudup, revealed a firearm that he had concealed and fired it "several times" at the man, the affidavit said. Taylor fled the scene, and Crudup was transported to Medical University Hospital where he was pronounced dead. None of the bystanders were injured.
