CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The two men arrested for a deadly North Charleston shooting in early January are scheduled to face a bond court judge Saturday.

Terris White, 25; and Jabari Lee, 22; are each charged with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to North Charleston Deputy Police Chief Scott Deckard.

The charges stem from the Jan. 8 shooting of 29-year-old Courtenay Smalls from North Charleston.

Investigators have not released any details about a possible motive in the shooting.

Police responded on Jan. 8 at approximately 7:16 p.m. to the 2000 block of Saint Francis Street to a report of someone bleeding in front of a home.

Officers then found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim later died from their injuries.

The U.S. Marshal's Office, Charleston City Police and the Charleston County Sheriff's Office assisted in the arrests, Deckard said.

According to the affidavit, multiple witnesses were interviewed and identified both Lee and White out of a lineup.
