Deputies Say Man Killed Victims Over Drugs

Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies have arrested two people in connection with a double homicide at a Columbia home.

Carlos Flores, 17, is charged with two counts of murder, while a 15-year-old girl is charged with accessory after the fact.

The shooting took place Thursday at a home on Kentucky Street, just south of the Olympia neighborhood off Bluff Road.

Officers say Flores and two men got into a argument over drugs, and during the fight, Flores shot both men in the upper body, killing them.

Hours later, state troopers spotted Flores slamming into other vehicles on Interstate 20 East in Aiken County. When they pulled him over, they found him and the 15-year-old in the vehicle.

Aiken deputies then tipped off Richland County to the crime scene on Kentucky Street, where officers found the victim's bodies on Friday morning.

Flores will be taken to Richland County jail. The girl will face her charges in family court.
