Teens charged after 2 men killed in Columbia home


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Richland County deputies say two men have been shot to death in a Columbia home and two teens have been charged.

Investigators said a 22-year-old man and a 26-year-old man were found dead in the home about 2 miles from downtown Friday morning. The names of the victims have not been released.

Sheriff Leon Lott said a 17-year-old man is charged with two counts of murder, while a 15-year-old girl has been charged as an accessory after the fact. Lott says troopers arrested them in Aiken County after they slammed into several cars on Interstate 20.

Lott says the shooting stemmed from a disagreement over a drug deal.
