2 charged in connection with fatal shooting of Cowpens teen


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with last week’s fatal shooting of another teenager.

The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2q8wmgv) that 19-year-old Devin Zachary Elijah Ruttle and 18-year-old Lorenzo Guillermo Daniel Calderon, both of Spartanburg, were arrested Thursday. Ruttle was charged with murder in the death of 18-year-old Dalton Moore of Cowpens, and Calderon was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony or murder.

Dalton was shot outside the Timken Community Center on May 5. Further details about the shooting have not been released. The State Law Enforcement Department took charge of the case as the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office was investigating two other shootings that day. SLED is continuing to investigate.

It’s unclear if either Ruttle or Calderon have lawyers.
