Charlotte brothers wanted in killing

The York County Sheriff's Office has issued arrest warrants for two Charlotte brothers in the shooting death of a Fort Mill payday lending clerk.

Tyree Marquise Belk, 19, and Curtis Luke Belk, 21, face murder charges in the Oct. 8 slaying of 47-year-old Joseph Fatigato of Pineville at Anyday Payday Loans in Fort Mill, said Capt. Jerry Hoffman of the York County Sheriff's Office.

The warrants were issued Thursday, Hoffman said. He declined to say what role police believe Tyree and Curtis Belk played in the shooting.

Both men were arrested last week in Charlotte with their brother, Jamar Lavert Belk, Hoffman said.

Last Saturday, the York County Sheriff's Office issued murder warrants against Jamar Belk, 19, Joshua Matthew Squires, 20, and Darryl Agustus Manning, 23, in the same robbery and shooting.

Tyree Belk's Charlotte charges include carrying a concealed weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Charlotte authorities charged Curtis Belk with a probation violation.

Surveillance video shows three masked men in dark clothes ran into the business around 6:30 p.m. Oct. 8.

One of the men jumped over the counter, and a second man went behind the counter, the video shows. A third man stayed out front near a customer, who was told to turn and face the wall.

The customer, who was not hurt, told police that one of the men scuffled with Fatigato. Fatigato was shot during the struggle. He later died at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. The group fled in a stolen silver-colored Plymouth Voyager that was recovered a short time later, police said.

Nine days later, police arrested Jamar Belk, Squires and Manning on murder, armed robbery and conspiracy charges. Squires was brought to York County on Tuesday and charged with kidnapping and a weapon violation, Hoffman said. Manning and the Belk brothers remained in custody Friday in Charlotte.
