Beech Island, SC (WIS) -The Aiken County Sheriff's Office says deputies have arrested two men in connection with a deadly robbery at a Beech Island barber shop.

Demarcus LiQuan Booker and Raphael Wooden, both of Augusta, were arrested on warrants for murder and armed robbery.

Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said 32-year-old Zann Worrell, Jr. of North Augusta was working at Island Cuts Barber Shop in Beech Island Saturday when two gunmen entered the business. Deputies say Worrell was shot several times as he fought with the suspects.

Worrell died at the hospital.

A witness saw the suspects drive away from the barber shop and followed their vehicle into Richmond County, GA, while updating emergency dispatchers of their location and license plate number. Richmond County deputies caught up with them and arrested the two.

Both Wooden and Booker are awaiting extradition to South Carolina to face charges.
