The Richland County Fugitive Task Force along with the U.S. Marshal’s Office have arrested two men after murdering a man in what was a failed robbery attempt.

Lt. Curtis Wilson says 19-year-old Ibn Gadson of Moncks Corner and 21-year-old Ryan Alston of Eutawville have been taken into custody after fatally shooting Jeremy Davis on December 13th at a gas station on Lee Road.

Authorities say Gadson and Alston assaulted two men sitting in their vehicle parked at the Spinx gas station. According to Lt. Wilson, Gadson and Alston approached the men intending to rob them. After assaulting the men, Alston fatally shot 20-year-old Davis in the upper body. The second victim suffered cuts and bruises and was treated at a local hospital.

Gadson and Alston are both being charged with murder, two counts of armed robbery, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of assault and battery, and two counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

Both men are now being held at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
