SUMTER, SC (WIS) - Bond has been denied for the suspect accused of shooting and killing a Crestwood High School student.

The suspect, 17-year-old Jaelon Jackson, turned himself into the Sumter Police Department. Jackson faces charges of murder, attempted armed robbery, conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. He is due back in court in June.

Four other suspects are already behind bars - Shanice Bradley, Diontre Brown, Dequan Washington and Joshua Smith, Jr. have also been charged in connection with Goodman's death.

Police say the suspects planned to rob 17-year-old Joshua Goodman when he tried to buy marijuana from them. Goodman was shot after a fight with one of the suspects.
