Suspects Sought in Murder Investigation

Investigators with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department are asking for the public’s help locating a man and woman wanted in connection with a murder that happened in April.

Sherman Jones (DOB: 5/27/2000) is wanted for murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime. Ameria Capers (DOB: 6/16/1997) is wanted for accessory to murder after the fact.

The charges stem from a shooting on April 13 at a Columbia apartment complex.

Jones and Capers are believed to be together and may be armed. Anyone who sees them should use caution and call 911.
