COLUMBIA, SC — Richland County sheriff’s deputies have charged a man with murder after a man was shot in the head and left in the road Tuesday night.
Brice Coley, 18, was arrested Thursday in connection with the shooting death of 18-year-old Moses McKnight in a neighborhood off Leesburg Road. Deputies found McKnight’s body in the roadway at Hilo Street and Sheffey Court, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Coley and McKnight were acquaintances, deputies said, and the two had had a series of disagreements and physical altercations in the time leading up to the shooting.
Coley is being held at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing before a circuit court judge.
Deputies are continuing to question people who may know about the shooting. Additional arrests are possible, according to the department.
