Lexington County deputies have arrested a 20-year-old man after investigators say he shot a teenager during a home invasion.

A news release from the Lexington County Sheriff's Department says Joshua Cody "Lil Miz" Young turned himself in at about 12 p.m. on Tuesday.

Young will be charged with murder, first-degree burglary, and possessing a weapon during the commission of a violent crime

Investigators say Young broke into the March Road home of 19-year-old Shane Diquan Brooks through a door at the rear of the house.

Officials say there was a struggle between the two men and Young fatally wounded Brooks.

Investigators had the crime scene roped off for much of Monday evening as they tried to learn more about what happened inside the home.

Deputies say the shooting and the break-in were not random acts, but the circumstances of the shooting and the motive for the burglary at Brooks' home remain under investigation.

Investigators say Brooks and Young were acquaintances.
