Pickens County deputies said they have arrested three men and are looking for a fourth in connection with the fatal shooting of a Clemson University junior on Saturday.
Deputies said their investigation led to Bernard Ramsey, 19, and then brothers Jordan Dalton, 19, and Jaron Dalton, 24, and Lester Mosley Jr., 18. Deputies said the Daltons and Ramsey have been charged with murder, armed robbery, burglary first-degree and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Mosley is still wanted and is considered armed and dangerous, deputies said.
Investigators said the four men invaded a Smoke Rise Drive house at the Homes at Chimney Ridge with the intent to rob 23-year-old Steven Grich's roommate, believing he had a large amount of marijuana, but only a few grams were reportedly taken. During the home invasion, deputies said Grich was shot to death.
Deputies said the Dalton brothers voluntarily came to the law enforcement center about 5 p.m. on Monday to speak with investigators. They said the black Durango was located and has been impounded.
Grich's roommate was arrested after deputies said they found marijuana in the apartment. They said 29-year-old Robert McKinley was charged with simple possession of marijuana.
Deputies said Clemson University and Clemson City police assisted in their investigation. Jail officials said the suspects will have bond hearings Tuesday afternoon.
Funeral arrangements have been announced for Grich, who was studying electrical engineering. His visitation will be held Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Palmetto Funeral Home in Fort Mill, where Grich was from. Funeral services will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in Fort Mill.
Initially, officials reported that Grich was a sophomore but released corrected information on Tuesday, stating that he was a junior.
Ramsey, Jordan Dalton and Jaron Dalton all appeared before a magistrate judge Tuesday afternoon. All the men were ordered held without bond. Their next court date is set for February.
Anyone with information about Mosley's whereabouts is asked to call the Pickens County Sheriff's Office at 864-898-5500.
