Later, investigators charged Landrum and Moore, along with 18-year-old Winston Nicholas Watson of Spartanburg, with first degree burglary. Landrum and Moore were also charged with one count each of Pointing and Presenting a Firearm at a Person.

Warrants say that Landrum and Moore entered the apartment and pointed a gun at one of the people inside while Watson conspired with the two.
