A Columbia man is under arrest, accused in the deadly shooting of his brother Sunday in Gaston.

Thursday Lexington County Sheriff's deputies charged Calvin Recardo Bryant, 20, of Columbia, with involuntary manslaughter, discharging a firearm into a dwelling and unlawful carrying of a pistol.

According to the arrest warrant, Bryant is accused of firing shots into a home on Lawndale Drive near Gaston early Sunday morning. Bryant's 19-year-old brother, Marquies Eugene Smith of Cayce, was shot in the forehead and died from his injury Wednesday at the hospital.

Investigators say Bryant and Smith intended to fire shots into the home because of a prior drug deal involving someone who lived in the home. Bryant inadvertently fired the shot that hit his brother in the head, according to investigators.
