TOANO, Va. (WVEC) -- James City County deputies say three people are facing charges in the October shooting death of 20-year-old Adren Garnett.

Officers said back on October 23, Garnett and an 18-year-old were in a fight with several people at Burnt Ordinary Apartments in Toano. That fight then led to gunfire.

When officers arrived, they found Garnett and the other man shot in the 7900 block of Sterling Court. Garnett, who was shot in his chest, died at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center.

The 18-year-old had a wound to his leg. Medics took him to Riverside Doctors’ Hospital and then flew him to Riverside Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

On Friday morning, 21-year-old Marques Raquan Stephens-Graves of James City County was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, malicious wounding, use of a firearm while committing murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and active participation in a criminal street gang.

Also on Friday, 24-year-old Jordan Allen Davis was arrested in Newport News and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
