Jonathan Lott, 25, was arrested in Aiken on multiple charges including possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, unlawful carrying of a weapon and failure to comply.

Aiken Public Safety arrested three people Tuesday while following tips in the slaying of Moses Williams.

Lt. David Turno said investigators were looking for a person to interview in the 300 block of Greenville Street. When they arrived, several people ran from the house, one with a handgun.

They arrested Ronald Anthony Harris Jr., 40, on drug charges; Devlin Dovon Simpkins, 21, on a failure to comply with a lawful order charge; and Jonathan Lott, 25, on charges including possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, unlawful carrying of a weapon and failure to comply with a lawful order.

Williams, 19, was shot in the head about 11:30 p.m. Sunday while waiting in a car outside his girlfriend’s home, police said. No one has been charged with killing Williams.

“Investigators continue to follow leads into the murder of Moses Williams and ask for the community to continue to call with tips,” Turno said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime­stoppers of the Mid­lands at (888) CRIME-SC (274-6372). Callers can receive a cash reward.
