Beaufort Police have arrested an 18-year-old Lady’s Island man in connection with the Nov. 22 shooting death of Ethan Bosworth.

Cameron Chan’ou Kim has been arrested and charged with murder, according to a post on the Beaufort Police Department’s Facebook page.

Kim was identified after “a thorough investigation that included canvasses of the area around the crime scene and extensive interviews with witnesses … friends and associates of Bosworth and Kim,” the post stated.

Kim was arrested without incident and taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center to await an initial appearance.

Bosworth, 20, of Beaufort, was shot around 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22 while sitting in a car on Waddell Road, Beaufort County Deputy Coroner David Ott said in November.

Bosworth drove a short distance before crashing into a tree. He was taken to Beaufort Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead, Ott said.

While Kim’s arrest is a key milestone in the investigation, the investigation remains active and ongoing, the post stated. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Sgt. Josh Dowling at 843-322-7950 or the tip line at 843-322-7938.
