An argument in the 2500 block of Ellis Street Lane late Friday night left a 20-year-old man dead of a gunshot wound and the 21-year-old man who allegedly pulled the trigger behind bars, Brunswick police said.

Police were called to reports of a shooting in the area and arrived at about 10:23 p.m. to find Cameron Johnson with a gunshot wound, Capt. Angela Smith said. Johnson was taken via ambulance to Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police arrested Ronrecus Goodwin, 21, on Saturday morning and charged him with murder and aggravated assault.

The two men were arguing prior to the shooting, Smith said.

Brunswick police served a search warrant Saturday in the 2800 block of Emanuel Avenue in connection with the shooting death, according to a city police report. Goodwin tried to turn himself in at the Glynn County Detention Center, “but (the) jail turned him away due to no outstanding warrants,” a police report said. Goodwin later turned himself in at about 9:30 a.m. at the Glynn County Police precinct in the Arco neighborhood, the report said.

Goodwin remained Sunday in the county jail.

Police are still investigating and anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Brunswick police detective Daniel Merritt at 912-267-2624 or Silent Witness hotline at 912-267-5516.
