Florence County sheriff’s deputies have arrested two Darlington men in connection with a shooting that killed one man and injured one of the suspects at a Florence motel nearly two weeks ago.

Justin Rashawn Simms, 18, of 514 Copeland Drive, was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder, according to a press release issued Thursday by the sheriff’s office. He is in custody at the Florence County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing before a circuit court judge.

Joshua Lavern Carraway, 23, was arrested Jan. 14 and charged with attempted armed robbery and accessory after the fact of murder. He remains at the jail in Effingham on a $60,000 bond, according to the release.

It happened about 11:30 p.m. Jan. 10 in the parking lot of Days Inn at 2111 W. Lucas St., located at Interstate 95 and U.S. 52. Marcus Weaver, 24, of 1180 Beulah Road, Lake City, died and Carraway was wounded.

Investigators allege Simms, Carraway and another person went to the Days Inn Motel parking lot intending to rob the victims, according to the release. The third suspect was not identified.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (843) 665-2121 or the state Crime Stoppers hotline at (888) CRIME SC (274-6372). Callers need not reveal their identities.
