CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -- Three people have been charged in the fatal shooting of a man near a South Carolina college campus.

Authorities say 23-year-old Donell Lamont Dewon James was charged Tuesday with murder, kidnapping, burglary and armed robbery.

A sheriff's spokesman says James is accused of breaking into a home just blocks from the Coastal Carolina University campus and shooting 37-year-old Allen D. Smith.

Horry (pronounced OR-ee) County sheriff's Sgt. Bob Carr says two other teenagers face lesser charges in the case.

All three suspects are from Conway about 15 miles northwest of Myrtle Beach.
