PELION, S.C. -

Lexington County sheriff's deputies are looking for two men who investigators said shot and killed a man during a transaction that began on Craigslist.

The victim's brother was wounded in the shooting last weekend.

Sheriff James Metts says the suspects arranged to meet 29-year-old Tycus Metricus Toland and 33-year-old Vonkeith Toland to buy a car.

Vonkeith Toland told investigators he and his brother arranged for the men to meet them outside a home near Pelion on Saturday.

Metts says when the four men arrived at the home, the suspects shot the brothers.

Tycus Toland died at the scene. Vonkeith Toland is in guarded condition in a hospital.

Metts says the circumstances of the shooting are still under investigation.
