JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Police said the getaway driver and another accomplice have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 21-year-old musician during a drug deal July 9 on the Northside.

Jacksonville police arrested Patrick Steadman in July and charged him in the shooting death of 21-year-old Richard Allen Green, who was found dead inside a car at the Highlander Apartments on Monaco Drive, off Dunn Avenue.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Steadman met Green for a drug deal, attempted to rob him, then ran from the area after the shooting.

This week, police said, a man who was with Steadman during the robbery and shooting and the woman who drove both men to and from the scene were arrested in connection with the murder.

Cameron McIntyre, 19, was found and arrested in Daytona Beach on charges of murder and attempted armed robbery. Police said McIntyre planned the robbery with Steadman and was with him when he shot Green.

Ashanti Rodgers, 19, is accused of driving Steadman and McIntyre around the day of the shooting, knowing that they were planning to rob Green, and then driving them to the robbery and away from the scene after the shooting. She is also charged with murder and attempted armed robbery.

Green was also known as Lil Richard, Richy Rich and Billion.

According to his obituary, Green (pictured, left) just released "Make It Better," which talked about the senseless dying taking place in Duval County and around the world. 

Steadman is charged with armed robbery, murder and possession of a weapon by a convicted delinquent adult. He is being held without bond.

According to court records, Steadman was arrested last year on charges of trespassing and not having a valid driver's license.
