A 17-year-old boy has been arrested at a Florida resort for the shooting deaths of two other teens outside a South Carolina library earlier this month.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office did not release the suspect’s name but said he would be charged as an adult, according to the Charleston Post & Courier.

The boy faces charges in the deaths of Malaki Trayvion Mazyck, 15, and Kenyon Johnson, 18, in the parking lot of the Sangaree branch of the Berkeley County Library on March 2.

Deputies were called to the Brighton Park Emergency Center in Summerville when the two victims were brought in with gunshot wounds. Mazyck died that evening at the emergency center, while Johnson was taken to another hospital, where he died the next morning.

The U.S. Marshals Service’s Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested the suspect on March 11 in his hotel reoom at the Port Orlando Resort, Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis said, according to WYFF.

He is currently awaiting extradition to South Carolina, officials said.

The 17-year-old is expected to be charged with two counts of murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime and could face up to life in prison if convicted.
