EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Solicitor Walt Wilkins said a man was sentenced for his role in the 2016 murder of 17-year-old Kejuan Mitchell Brown at an Upstate bowling alley.

The solicitor's office said Dennis Ezell Gibbs Jr., 21, pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact to murder.

According to the solicitor, Gibbs rode in the car with Jamari Fair, Albert Taylor, and a juvenile co-defendant to Tri-City Lanes in Ealsey where Fair arranged a fight with another man on social media. 

The solicitor said the four men confronted the people they wanted to fight and Taylor exited the vehicle and fatally shot Kejuan Brown. The four men then drove away and hid the guns in a backpack in Greenville County, the solicitor's office said. 

They were later apprehended at the Spinx gas station in Dacusville. 

The solicitor said guns were recovered and the murder weapon was positively identified via SLED analysis.

Gibbs was sentenced to 15 years in jail.
