UPDATE (January 7, 2013 - 10:20 A.M.)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Tallahassee police have arrested a second suspect involved in the case of a man found shot to death in the parking lot of Osceola Ridge Apartments.

Police have arrested 19-year-old Kamielle Morgan in relation to the death of 21-year-old Joshua Frazier.  Police arrested another suspect, 20-year-old Oscar Williams, on January 3.

Neither Morgan or Williams is accused of shooting Frazier, according to a police report. The probable cause affidavits for both say that the three were part of a robbery attempt that ended with the victim shooting at the suspects and fleeing the scene.

Williams' affidavit says that the three created a scheme to rob people. Frazier reportedly said that he would maintain an online personal ad for Morgan meet up with men. She wouldn't have to have sexual relationships with the men, just meet them; Williams and Frazier would confront them. The affidavits do not confirm whether or not that's what happened the night of January 2, when Frazier was found dead.

Morgan is charged with attempted murder, robbery with a weapon, and a felony count of conspiring to commit a crime.

Morgan is listed as a Valdosta, Ga. resident.


UPDATE (January 3, 2013 - 3:37 P.M.)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL) --Tallahassee police have arrested a man in connection with a deadly shooting.

Officers arrested Oscar Williams, 20, January 3, just hours after a fatal shooting at the Osceola Ridge Apartments, located at 1001 Ocala Road.

According to the Probable Cause Affidavit provided by Tallahassee Police Department, officers were called out to the apartment complex shortly after 11 p.m. On January 2. Officers say they found the body of Joshua Frazier, 21, lying in the parking lot, dead from a gunshot wound.

What role Williams had in the shooting is still unclear. The Probable Cause Affidavit does not say Williams shot Frazier, and in a release to WTXL, officers say Williams was arrested "for his involvement" in the shooting.

Officers charge Williams and Frazier with working with a third woman to run a scheme, enticing men on the internet to meet with them and then confronting the men and robbing them.

"Witness KM stated that she met Frazier a few days ago after he responded to her e-commerce website personals advertisement," the Probable Cause Affidavit states. "Frazier and KM communicated via e-mail and text about the opportunity for her to come to Tallahassee, FL and make money by meeting with men. KM stated that when she came to Tallahassee, she met with Williams and Frazier. Frazier explained to KM that he would assume her online presence and send pictures of her to men who were seeking women online and offer to meet them for money. Frazier told KM that she would not have to have sexual intercourse with the men, only to meet them outside while Williams and Frazier confronted them. On two separate occasions, Frazier set up meetings for KM to stand outside and meet a male from the Internet. After KM met the males in the parking lot, Frazier and Williams approached the male and robbed them of cash. KM stated that both times, Williams participated in the robberies."

The Affidavit goes on to say that the three met again in Tallahassee and planned a robbery similar to the ones listed above. "After receiving the money, Frazier approached the male. Seconds later, KM heard gunshots and she ran into the apartment."

Williams is being held in the Leon County Jail on charges of Felony Murder and Attempted Robbery with a Firearm.

Investigators are asking anyone with any information in the shooting to call Tallahassee Police Department at (850) 891-4200 or Big Bend Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-8477.
