JESUP, GA (WTOC) -

A juvenile female and a man have been arrested in Long County in connection with a fatal shooting death of a Jesup man.

Kenneth Stevens, 28, and a 16-year-old girl were arrested in connection with the death of 35-year-old Eddie Pearson III. 

Investigators say the case started when a man went to pick up his cousin for work. The man went into the house in the Chapman Plantation area in Jesup and found Pearson shot to death.

Pearson had been working at a landscaping company since moving to Jesup in April.

The crime leaves loved ones, neighbors and investigators wondering who would kill someone who hadn't been living there that long.
