CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV)-- Mulberry Street is closed to anyone except emergency personnel as crews continue to search for clues in the killing of 17-year-old Marley Lion.

The Charleston police and Charleston County Sheriff's Office have enlisted the help of an underwater recovery boat crew to search a nearby pond.

The retention pond behind Famous Joe's was searched Monday. No details have been released about what was or wasn't found in that search but on Tuesday crews were using large metal detectors in the water.

Marley Lion was found shot by his truck, parked in the parking lot of Famous Joe's on June 16. Police have said the shooting was the result of a botched robbery and have since released a video showing the shooter and another possible suspect.

If you have any information on the murder of Lion, you are asked to call the investigative unit at the Charleston Police Department  or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.

UPDATE: The Charleston Police Department will have a press briefing at 2 p.m. Tuesday in reference to the Marley Lion homicide investigation.
