COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott announces the arrest of a man accused of shooting another man after a verbal altercation last month.

19-year-old Jarquis Bernard Davis (DOB: 9/6/1991) turned himself in to Columbia Police Officers at the Columbia Police Department yesterday morning.

Davis is being charged with Attempted Murder and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Violent Crime.

Davis and second suspect, 21-year-old Desmond Hakeem Mayo, (DOB: 11/21/1989) are accused of being involved in a shooting that occurred on May 5, 2011 at a residence located at 4219 Grand Street. Mayo is also charged with Attempted Murder.
