By October 7, 2020Press Releases

The Columbia Police Department (CPD) announces the arrest of a 20-year-old man in connection with this weekend’s fatal shooting incident on Senate Street.

According to Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook, Xavier York Glover (DOB: 5-17-2000) is currently housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC) charged with Murder and Armed Robbery.

Investigators are also searching for a second male suspect who should be considered armed and dangerous.

CPD officers have pending arrest warrants for 20-year-old Zachery Jamell Williams (DOB: 3-20-2000) for Murder, Armed Robbery, and Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime. The arrest warrants have been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database. Williams may be driving a white or gray 2002 Honda CRV with South Carolina tag LLA-715.

Preliminary information:

CPD investigators believe the two suspects saw the male victim, who’s been identified by Richland County Coroner Gary Watts as 26-year-old Wesley Colin Brown walking alone along the 1700 block of Senate Street on Sunday morning. Shortly after seeing Brown, it’s believed Williams approached him, stole a personal belonging and shot him before the two suspects drove away from the scene.

After the crime, a couple out for a morning walk found Brown and called 9-1-1. When officers and EMS arrived, the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
