The 23-year-old and 20-year-old were arrested a short time after the shooting, police said, noting a gun was recovered.

"My friend is dead because of this," said Dedrick Scott. "I have to sit here and watch my friend get shot down, for nothing, because of missed words? Anybody can misuse words, but it's how you handle a situation. He didn’t have to shoot that man. Marcus didn’t deserve this."
