A 16-year-old Greene County boy who was one of four teens leading police on a 10-hour chase Thursday has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his father.

Multiple media outlets report the charges. They include accessory after the fact to murder charges for the three other teenagers. All four are also charged with theft.

Police said the teens took at least eight guns from Tennessee, but they were unarmed when they were finally arrested in South Carolina. Police said they had been on their way to Myrtle Beach.

Greene County deputies have said the father was 36 years old and was found shot to death in his home around 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The Greene County sheriff could not be reached at his office Saturday by The State newspaper or the Associated Press.
