CHESTER, S.C. (AP) — Police say three suspected gang members have been arrested in the killing of a South Carolina city councilman who was gunned down earlier this month.

Chester County Sheriff Alex Underwood said Friday that 18-year-old Christopher Moore is charged with murder and 25-year-old Quinton McClinton is charged with accessory to murder. An arrest warrant identifies Moore as the man who shot 70-year-old Chester City Councilman Odell Williams on Nov. 4.

Authorities say 20-year-old DeAngelo Roseboro also was arrested. Another man was being sought.

Underwood says the men are members of a gang which has been making threats against the sheriff's office. He says Williams was shot with an assault rifle.

Investigators said earlier they found several bullet holes in Williams' car and 15 to 20 shell casings at the scene.
