— Police are looking for two men wanted on charges related to a home invasion in the Carolina Forest area that injured one man.

David Davis, 22, and Jawara Javonta Hannah, 23, of Hemingway are wanted on charges of attempted murder, first-degree burglary, kidnapping and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Horry County police also have a warrant charging Hannah with possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent felony.

Lt. Robert Kegler said Davis also has ties to Rochester, NY. Anyone with information about the location of Davis or Hannah can call Horry County Police at 915-TIPS.

The charges stem from a home invasion on the 5000 block of Belleglen Court in the Fountains, a gated community located off Gardner Lacy Road, that happened before 10 p.m. Sunday.

Police met two victims at the home after the shooting. The third victim was at Conway Hospital receiving treatment for a gunshot wound. His injuries were not life threatening, Kegler said.

The victims told police David is a childhood friend of the man who was shot, the report said.

The injured man told police Davis had called earlier in the day saying he would be stopping by.

When he opened his door both suspects walked in, and Davis put a gun to a victim’s heads, the report said.

Police said the Hannah is accused of demanding drugs and money and threatening to kill one of the victims.

Police said one victim convinced two suspects to go into a bedroom with him where he gave them $2,000 cash before grabbing Davis’ arm and taking the gun from him. Hannah reportedly shot the man in his back before the pair fled.

According to the report, the men had placed a potato on the barrel of both guns.

The gun the victim grabbed was taken as evidence by police.
