The victim was identified as 21-year-old Tommy Leon Brothers.

A short time after the shooting, police stopped a suspected vehicle on I-95. Inside the car, they found Ward.

Investigators said they believe Ward came with two other people to meet Mims and sell drugs, according to the sheriff’s office. A disagreement over the transaction led to the shooting and Ward robbing the victim.
