NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — Two South Carolina teenagers are charged with murder in the shooting death of a good Samaritan who helped them pull an SUV out of a ditch.

North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor tells local news outlets the victim stopped to help the teens pull the vehicle out of a ditch about 11 p.m. Monday and was robbed and shot after the vehicle was freed.

The victim, who died at the scene, was identified as Chadwick Garrett, a 45-year-old North Charleston resident.

Pryor says 17-year-old Deon Antonio Frasier and 19-year-old Michael Odell Anthony Dupree-Tyler, both of North Charleston, are charged with murder. Frasier is also charged with possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

It was not immediately known if they had attorneys.
