CAROLINA FOREST, SC (WMBF) - Horry County Police have arrested one of the two men believed to be involved in a shooting in Carolina Forest back in December 2013.

David Davis, 22, was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree burglary, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, attempted murder and kidnapping. He is from Hemingway, but also has ties to Rochester, New York, HCPD officials stated. Police are still looking for 23-year-old Jawara Javonta Hannah, also from Hemingway. He faces the same charges as Davis, as well as possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent felony.

The shooting occurred inside a home on Belleglen Court in The Fountains subdivision, just off of Gardner Lacy Road, on December 8, 2013. Davis and Hannah were armed with handguns and invaded the home, confirmed Horry County Police spokesperson Lieutenant Robert Kegler.

A man at home with his family, including children, was shot at least once, in the right shoulder by one suspect while the man was fighting with another, Kegler stated. The victim sought medical treatment while detectives began investigating. The man shot is expected to be okay and is currently at an area hospital for his injury.

In the police report, the man who was shot admitted to knowing his alleged attacker Davis, claiming the man called to ensure he would be home. In the report, it states the man considers Davis to be a childhood friend.

The homeowner stated one of the suspects grabbed his youngest son and said, "If you don't give me the drugs and money I am going to kill him."

He pleaded with the suspect to spare his family and gave him $2,000 in cash. The man then tried to grab the gun. During the struggle, the other suspect came in the room and shot the man.

One of the guns belonging to the suspects was left at the scene. No exact word yet on how the two men got into the development, either through the gated entrance or on foot.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Hannah, you are asked to call the Horry County Police Department at 915-TIPS or your local law enforcement agency.
