BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich – Detectives in Benton Township say they’ve arrested a second suspect following the shooting death of 17-year-old Karlos Quebay Kelly in the Blossom Lane neighborhood on Sunday.
Daquantaries Maurice Williams, 18, of Benton Harbor was arrested after investigators found him at an apartment building on Anderson Drive in South Bend, Indiana around 4:30 a.m. Police say he’s currently being held in the St. Joseph County Jail awaiting extradition to Michigan to face murder and felony firearms charges.
Investigators say witness accounts allege Daquantaries Williams was with Anthony Daniel Walker, 18, and Seddrick Williams, 18, the day of the deadly shooting.
Police believe the trio was sitting in a white Toyota passenger vehicle at or near the 1200 block of Blossom Lane when Kelly started walking in their direction.
Investigators believe Walker exited the vehicle and shot Kelly before returning to the vehicle, leaving the area with Walker and Seddrick Williams.
Benton Township officers found Kelly unconscious in the roadway when they arrived at the scene of the shooting. First responders attempted to revive Kelly, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say they’ve received conflicted accounts as to the circumstances of what may have led up to the shooting, which remains part of the ongoing investigation.
Seddrick Williams was arrested earlier this week, who also faces charges of murder and felony firearms. He was arraigned earlier this week and is currently being held on $2,000,000 bond. His next scheduled court appearance is November 4.
Right now, Anthony Walker, who faces the same charges, remains at large.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Walker is encouraged to contact the Benton Charter Township Police Department Detective Bureau at 269-926-8221 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-342-7867. The Berrien County Homicide Task Force is also involved in this ongoing investigation.
