Lexington County deputies have arrested two Columbia men accused of firing shots that killed a woman and injured a man early Wednesday morning.

Tyrese Dwan Glascho, 24, and Jalin Trevon Jordan, 18, are charged with murder, attempted murder, attempted armed robbery, criminal conspiracy and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants.

The men shot their guns in the direction of the man and woman after the attempted armed robbery, according to Koon.
