Authorities say the boy was with two men, 20-year-old John Riley and his 17-year-old brother, when he was shot. The sheriff says the men initially told police the shooting was random, but later admitted they spent Monday planning to rob a drug dealer. Both have been charged with armed robbery.
Ravenell says the dealer, 26-year-old Calvin Busby, also was arrested. It wasn't clear if any of the suspects had attorneys.
