GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Three teenagers were arrested Wednesday following a shooting at a Greenville apartment complex that killed a 17-year-old.

The Greenville Police Department arrested Nigel Makale Edmunds, 17, of Greenville, a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old juvenile on the following charges:

  • Murder
  • Attempted murder
  • Attempted armed robbery
  • Possession of weapon during violent crime
  • Possession of handgun by minor
  • Discharging firearm into an occupied vehicle
  • Unlawful carrying of handgun

Officers responded to the shooting around 4:30 p.m. at the Mulberry Court Apartments on Mulberry Street.

Police said that the three teenagers approached two people sitting in a car in attempt to rob them which resulted in the passenger being shot.

The vehicle fled the scene to the Emergency MD facility on North Pleasantburg Drive for assistance, but the passenger succumbed to his injuries, police said.

The Greenville County Coroner’s Office identified the passenger as Antwon Mario Suggs, 17, of Greer.

David Brancati was one of the doctors that treated Suggs at the hospital.

He says Suggs had already lost a lot of blood when he got to the emergency room, saying most gunshot victims he helps, don’t make it.

“He had non-survivable injuries prior to arrival. I think a lot of what you see on tv and life saving measures and the belief that folks are saved, I will tell you it’s not the case,” Brancati said.

Edmunds was booked into the Greenville County Detention Center. He is being charged as an adult.

The other two teenagers were booked into the Department of Juvenile Justice.
