A man charged with killing an Edgewood teenager in June was arrested yesterday in South Carolina, police said.

Gary D. Davenport, 29, of the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way in Edgewood was found at a relative's home in Pinewood, S.C., and was arrested without incident in the shooting death of Taurean P. Williams, 18, of Edgewood, said Sgt. David Betz, a spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

Davenport also faces charges in the shooting of Williams' brother, Timothy Patrick Williams, 20, of Edgewood, Betz said.

Taurean Williams was pronounced dead in the 1600 block of Candlewood Drive in Edgewood a little after 3 a.m. June 14, police said. Timothy Williams, who survived, was found in the same block with multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso, police said.

Davenport is charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and using a handgun in the commission of a violent crime, Betz said.

Davenport was arrested by Maryland state troopers, who were assisted by the Clarendon County Sheriff's Office and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, Betz said.

Davenport waived his right to an extradition hearing and was on his way back to Maryland yesterday to face the charges, Betz said.
