RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A 16-year-old Midlands teen has been arrested for allegedly shooting two teens over the weekend, killing a 14-year-old over a video game console.
The Richland County Sheriff's Department says Desmond Marquise Cromer, 16, is charged with murder, attempted murder, attempted armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime for the Feb. 25 shooting on St. Andrews Road.
"Cromer had made arrangements to purchase a gaming device [when a] short struggle ensued when he attempted to rob the teens," the sheriff's department said.
Sheriff Leon Lott called this a "senseless crime that affected the lives of too many" and says he's "frustrated with the shooting over a gaming device."
Cromer has been transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
