COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Two men have been arrested and charged with killing a man in some woods north of Columbia.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says Quamell Montrez Tucker and Dominic Anthony Cole turned themselves in to authorities this week.
Both men are 19 years old, and it wasn't immediately clear if either man had an attorney.
Coroner Gary Watts has identified the victim as 21-year-old James J. Shepard of Columbia. Watts says Shepard died from a gunshot wound, and authorities say two people clearing a path in the woods off U.S. 321 found his body on Sunday morning.
Lott says more arrests are possible.
