Lexington, SC  (WLTX) An 18-year-old and a 15-year-old have been charged in connection with a shooting that left two men shot last week at a local motel on Piney Grove Road, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.

Arrest warrants allege that around 7pm on January 10th, Darius Isaiah Foster,18,  Kenneth Daniel Toland, 23 (who was arrested last week in connection with the shooting)  and the 15-year-old boy, all of Columbia,  drove to the parking lot of the Town and Country Suites on Piney Grove road to sell marijuana to three men. 

After arriving, according to deputies, Foster produced a handgun and demanded money from one of the three males.  

An altercation ensued, and two of the three men were shot and wounded. 

Denzell Labrew, 18 of Columbia and Hakiim Rasheed Pope, Jr, 24 of Columbia were shot and wounded according to Metts.  Pope has been treated and released while Labrew was continuing to undergo medical treatment at the hospital for injuries that do not appear life threatening. 

A Lexington County magistrate has denied Toland's request to post bond while Toland awaits tria. He has been charged with attempted murder according to Metts. 

Darius Isaiah Foster, 18, of Columbia turned himself in today on arrest warrant charges of attempted murder and armed robbery.

The Irmo police department has an outstanding arrest warrant for Foster on charges of armed robbery and possessing a weapon during the commission of a violent crime that is unrelated to the shooting incident. 

Foster is scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing on Thursday.  

The 15-year-old boy from Columbia turned himself in Wednesday morning.  He will be housed at a pre-trial detention facility that the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice operates until he appears in family court for a hearing.    

Lexington County Detectives say that they will recommend that the 11th Judicial Circuit Solicitor's Office prosecute the boy in family court in Lexington on charge of attempted murder. 

Metts said the case remains under investigation and more charges could be filed.
