COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

While Columbia police search for two brothers wanted in a Saturday night homicide, the Richland County Coroner has released the name of the man they are accused of killing.

Coroner Gary Watts says 47-year-old Isaac Lewis died at the hospital, minutes after he was shot on Magnolia Street Saturday night.

Jennifer Timmons with the Columbia Police Department said arrest warrants have been issued for Horace Watts and his younger brother Malik Davis.  

Once captured, they will be charged with murder, attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a pistol, Timmons said.

Timmons said the initial investigation indicates that shortly before 9 p.m., a large party gathered in the 2700 block of Magnolia Street, near Lewis' home.

It is believed that Malik Davis got into a verbal and physical altercation with another man and Davis allegedly left the location but returned with his brother Horace Watts, Timmons said.

Both are accused of being armed with handguns.

The suspects fired several gunshots into the crowd striking two men, killing Lewis, Timmons said.

The second victim is still recovering from his injuries.

Watts is described as a black male, approximately 5'08 and weighing 160 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing light denim pants with a red belt and white T-shirt, a red and blue baseball cap, and Air Force One tennis shoes.

Malik Davis is described as a black male, approximately 5'06" and weighing 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing white leather shorts with a red and white shirt, and Air Force One tennis shoes. Malik may have gold grills on his upper and lower teeth.

Timmons said both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances that led up to the shooting, and if the suspects and victims were acquaintances.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the two men is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
