SC teen left for dead by friend after shootout

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) —  Police say the body of a slain teenager that was found on a South Carolina road had been dumped there by a friend.

16-year-old Devon Javon Curry was killed Tuesday after he and a friend were involved in a shootout, sparked by an argument over an Instagram post.

Travelers Rest Police Chief Benjamin Ford told news outlets that Curry and 18-year-old friend Ke’Savious Keyshawn Elmore exchanged fire with a group of teenagers at an apartment complex.

Ford says Elmore left Curry on the side of the road after the shooting. Curry was later found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Elmore was charged Thursday with attempted murder. Seventeen-year-old Anthony O’Neal Martin, Jr., and a 16-year-old were also arrested.

It is unclear if the suspects have attorneys.
