In gray but stark images, a security camera captured the early Saturday, cold-blooded killing of a teen in a parked sport utility vehicle, investigators who released the video said Tuesday.
On the silent video, a man approaches the SUV occupied by 17-year-old Marley Lion. Several seconds pass, and after the vehicless alarm and emergency flashers are activated the man departs. But he comes back into view, and from beside the SUV with an arm extended fires multiple shots into the vehicle.
The killing outside Famous Joe’s Bar and Grill at 1662 Savannah Highway in West Ashley “was a very horrendous attempted robbery,” Charleston police Detective Richard Burkhardt said at an afternoon news conference. Police Chief Greg Mullen and Mayor Joe Riley appealed to anyone who knows anything about the killing to contact authorities.
“We need the citizens of Charleston’s help to bring this awful criminal to justice,” Riley said. Riley called Lion’s killer “an outrageously lawless hoodlum who will harm someone again.”
