COLUMBIA — A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a second suspect in connection with the Eighth Street shooting Sunday afternoon.
The warrant is for the arrest of Durantrae Logan, 19, of Columbia, Police Department spokeswoman Latisha Stroer said.
Police responded to a reported shooting in the 300 block of North Eighth Street at 3:09 p.m. Sunday. The man who was shot, Lamont Sargent, 39, died Sunday after being transported from his home to University Hospital in critical condition.
The first suspect, Larrell Banks, 18, of Fulton, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder Monday in connection with the shooting. According to court records, he was scheduled to be in court Tuesday at 5 p.m. in connection with an incident of shots fired in April 2011.
Stroer said that according to the probable cause statement about the Sunday shooting, Banks went to the victim's residence to sell cocaine.
Banks' bond is set at $1 million, cash only, according to court records. He has also been charged with distribution, manufacturing or production of a controlled substance.
Logan has been previously arrested — twice for unlawful possession of a firearm — and in 2009 pleaded guilty of unlawful use of a weapon, according to court records.
