Three Accused of Laurens County Murder

Three people are accused in connection with the shooting death of an East Dublin man Tuesday night.

Capt. Stan Wright of the Laurens County Sheriff's Department says the three were arrested overnight and are now in the county jail.

'He said they expected to face murder charges in the death of Darrin Taylor. They are:

Justin Jones, age 17;
Damien Payne, aka Damien Williams, age 21;
and Teyana Whitfield, age 17.

All three are from Laurens County.

Wright would not release further details on the case or the circumstances of the shooting. But Wright said the case is still under investigation and the three may face further charges.

He said Taylor's body was found Tuesday night in a rural area between Dudley and Montrose in Laurens County.

Wright said there's so far no indication that Taylor's death is connected to a Saturday-night shooting in Dublin. Police say 21-year old Dwight Scott was robbed at his East Mary Street home, then shot at point-blank range.
