Concord police arrested two young men Thursday night and charged them in Sunday evening’s shooting death of a 15-year-old Cabarrus County high school student. A third suspect was arrested Friday.

Marlon Tyrese Banner, 25, and Corey Levi Banner, 18, were taken into custody without incident at their home on Boulder Drive SW, according to Concord police.

Christopher Jammel Whitfield, 19, also was arrested without incident about 4 p.m. in Concord, officials said.

They are being held without bond Friday.

They were charged with one count each of first-degree murder and discharging a weapon into a moving vehicle. Those charges stem from the death of Mark Gevon Bostic, a sophomore at Jay M. Robinson High School.

Police say the shooting stemmed from a disagreement between groups of people in two separate cars.

One vehicle followed the other, police say, and shots were fired at Corban Avenue SW and Crowell Drive SW. Bostic, sitting in one of the cars, was seriously wounded.

Police say someone brought him in a private vehicle to CMC-NorthEast, where officials contacted authorities. Bostic died a short time later.

Police have not disclosed the nature of the disagreement between the groups.
