ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A third person has been arrested in the shooting death of a North Carolina man in South Carolina last week.

The Herald of Rock Hill reported that police in Fort Mill have arrested 18-year-old Montez Laverry Rutledge and charged him with murder.

Twenty-one-year-old Chance Pate of Charlotte, N.C., was shot and killed at a vacant home in Rock Hill on July 20.

Twenty-year-old Jonathon Garrett Jones of Fort Mill and 20-year-old Audra Nicole Cunningham of Rock Hill were arrested Friday and charged with murder.

Arrest warrants say the suspects lured Pate to the home and ambushed him. Officers found Pate and an abandoned car at a city park.

He was taken to a Rock Hill hospital where he died.
