Second suspect arrested in shooting death of man in Columbia for a wedding

Investigators say 20-year-old Zachery Jamell Williams turned himself over to authorities.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Columbia police have taken into custody a second suspect in connection to the shooting death of a Greenville man who had come to Columbia for a wedding.  

Investigators say 20-year-old Zachery Jamell Williams turned himself in Thursday morning with the help of his attorney. In a crime alert online, the University of South Carolina said Williams is a current USC student. 

Police had already arrested 20-year-old Xavier York Glover, who is charged with murder and armed robbery. 

Police say 26-year-old Wesley Colin Brown was walking alone along the 1700 block of Senate Street on Sunday morning, when he was shot. Investigators believe Williams approached Brown, stole a personal belonging and shot him before the two suspects drove away from the scene.

After the crime, a couple out for a morning walk found Brown and called 9-1-1. When officers and EMS arrived, Brown was pronounced deceased at the scene.

In an autopsy on the body Monday, Watts concluded that Brown died from complications of a gunshot wound.

CPD investigators determined that Brown came to Columbia to attend a wedding and was alone at the time of the shooting incident.
