16 Year Old Fatally Shot, Suspect in Custody

Greenville Police charge 19 year old Otez Thompson with 2nd degree Murder.

The Greenville Police Department launches a murder investigation. Officers were dispatched Thursday at 6:05 p.m. to 247 Crescent in reference to a shot person. Authorities report finding 16 year old Quinten Grimshel inside the residence. The Washington County Coroner later pronounced Grimshel deceased.  

Authorities tell The Delta News, a preliminary investigation suggests firearms were inside the residence; police say the occupants were playing with a gun when it discharged.  

Police have now arrested 19 year old Otez Thompson, charging him with 2nd degree murder and tampering with evidence.

No bond has been set. Thompson is currently being held at the Washington County Correctional Facility.
