Former employee, three others arrested in pizza store slaying
Wednesday, June 15, 2011

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Deputies have arrested four more people in connection to the June 3 slaying of a pizza store general manager on Two Notch Road.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced Wednesday the arrests of Edward Antonio Walker, 23, Darnell Donte Crocker, 20, Carwin Tyron Pettis, 24, and Timothy Ricardo Fisher, 22 for murder and a variety of other charges.

The four suspects join 22-year-old David Wesley Watson Sr. who was already in custody for the killing of Papa John's general manager Steven Fowler, 34, of Irmo. Watson was arrested June 8 for shooting Fowler, who was closing up for the night, in his car.

Lott said Crocker, Pettis, Fisher and Walker were all armed with BB guns and were with Watson the night he killed Fowler. An investigation revealed that Crocker was a former employee of the pizza shop and had knowledge of the business' money deposits, the sheriff said.

Investigators said the killing was part of an 8-day crime spree Watson went on from May 30-June 6 when he robbed three hotels in the same general area. The investigation linked one of the four additional men arrested to one of those robberies, Lott said.

Richland County deputies plan to hold a news conference Thursday morning to discuss the details of how the additional arrests happened and how the incident unfolded the night Steven Fowler was killed.
