Sheriff Byrd says on August 22, deputies responded to a shooting at 1320 Griggs Circle in Hartsville and later found the victim at the hospital. The victim told deputies two men came to his home, threatened him with a handgun and demanded money. Deputies say the 19-year-old victim told them during an altercation with one man he was shot in the arm and the men left in a silver Honda. Byrd says investigators retrieved a bullet from the scene.
Both Thomas and Rogers remain in the Darlington County Detention Center.
