Two people have been arrested after a 19-year-old was shot and killed in Crystal Springs earlier this week.

According to Crystal Springs Police Chief Tony Hemphill, Martavious Reid, 20, and Cameron Miller, 20, have been charged with first-degree murder of Jaquavious Wilson, 19.

The night of the shooting the victim’s uncle, Jerry Wilson, told WLBT that the teen called him and thought “someone was about to do something to him.” Wilson told his nephew to come to his house, but his nephew never made it there.

Authorities say they are working on a possible motive, but that there was some sort of history between Reid and Wilson.

Reid had his initial appearance in court Friday and was given no bond.
