ROBESON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Two men were booked at Robeson County Jail in connection with a Lumberton home invasion and shooting that left one man dead, and the homeowner in serious condition.

Brandon Carver Stephens, 28, of Fairmont and Jamar Hawkins, 17, of Lumberton were taken to the Florence County Detention Center, according to Major Anthony Thompson, Robeson County Sheriff's Office. From there, Robeson County Sheriff's Office Deputies transported the pair to Robeson County, where they were booked Thursday night. 

Stephens and Hawkins had been hospitalized for gunshot wounds at McLeod Hospital in Dillon, following the invasion, according to Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey.

The shooting left one person dead Monday night in Robeson County.

According to witnesses, a man, his wife, and his 19-year-old granddaughter were home on Yedda Road in Lumberton when a black male knocked on their door and asked for water for his mechanical problems with his car.

Two other people entered the home wearing black clothing, ski masks and gloves asking for money. All three suspects also had handguns, according to the release.

The release states that the man and his wife were forced into the back of the house and advised to open the safe while the suspects attempted to rape the 19-year-old granddaughter.

The man was then able to retrieve a weapon and several shots were fired between the man and the suspects in the house. The man was struck multiple times by gunshots and the suspects then fled the scene in his vehicle.

The man was transported to Southeastern Regional Medical Center and later airlifted to another medical facility where he remains in serious condition, according to the release.

Officers later received a call from the McLeod Hospital in Dillon and discovered that Stephens and Hawkins had been shot. Both were airlifted to another medical facility for emergency surgery.

Jamie Lee Faison, 20, was later found in the man's stolen vehicle deceased, where he had been shot, according to the release.

During their first court appearances Friday, Stephens and Hawkins were each charged with first-degree burglary, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession of a firearm by a felon, first-degree sexual offense, kidnapping, and two counts each of robbery with a firearm and felony conspiracy. Bond for each suspect was set at $1 million secured.

Stephens, Hawkins, and Faison are possible persons of interest in other home invasions, according to the release.

If anyone has any information pertaining to this case please call the Robeson County Sheriff's Office at (910) 671-3100 and ask for the Homicide Division.
