— A second person was arrested and charged Saturday in connection with a Friday night fatal shooting at a north Raleigh apartment complex.

Adrian Lamar Oden, 22, of 637 Sunnybrook Rd., was charged with robbing Casty St. Louis, 20, of $800 worth of cash and marijuana, according to arrest warrants.

Darius Lamont Watkins, 19, is accused of killing Casty St. Louis, 20, at the apartment complex in the 6300 block of Shadowland Crossing. Police say the shooting was not a random act.

St. Louis formerly played running back for Word of God Christian Academy and Wake Forest High School.

Officers were called to the area, near the intersection of Old Wake Forest Road and Oak Forest Road, at about 6:45 p.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found St. Louis. He was taken to WakeMed, where he later died.

Oden and Watkins are scheduled to make their first court appearances on Monday.

    doesn't make me wonder, dealing drugs shortens your life expectancy. the same would've happened had he been dealing crack or meth. two gangsters saw an opportunity to rob someone, plain as that.

    And how many times have I read from people defending the legalization of Marijuana that “Marijuana is a nonviolent crime!” One man has lost his life in this incident and two others have destroyed theirs. It makes you wonder???
