2 men arrested, charged in Swansea shooting

Swansea, SC 11/20/2020 - Lexington County deputies have arrested and charged two men in a shooting in Swansea that injured a woman Wednesday morning.

Xavier Marquis Golson, 23, and Jose Cedeak Antonio Haygood, 25, are charged with two counts of attempted murder, attempted armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants.

“With the help of recovered evidence and witness statements, detectives have determined this shooting happened after Golson and Haygood tried to rob a man and a woman who were in a car parked in the 800 block of Bachman Dykes Road,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Golson and Haygood fired multiple shots at the car as it drove away.”

A female passenger was struck in the head, according to Koon. The woman continues to receive care at the hospital for what her medical team describes as a serious injury.

“Golson turned himself in at our headquarters Thursday morning followed by Haygood Thursday night,” Koon said.

Both men are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
