Shooting Death of Quitman Teenager

QUITMAN, Ga. (AP) — Brooks County authorities have arrested three men and one juvenile in the shooting death of a Quitman teenager.

Sheriff's officials on Monday arrested 33-year-old Willie Phelps and charged him with the Saturday night murder of 19-year-old Christopher Deshad Sloan.

The others, 39-year-old Kenneth Brinson, 17-year-old Kenneth Williams, and a 16-year-old boy are charged with being participants in the crime.

Witnesses say the shooting occurred after an argument took place at the Westwind Apartments in Quitman. The suspects had confronted Sloan about an argument he had had with one of their relatives earlier that day.
