The suspect in the double murder at the Days Inn of Aiken was captured Thursday morning, authorities said.

Around 6:30 a.m., 20-year-old Hasheem Keywaun Rond Glover was arrested after developments led Aiken County deputies and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division agents to the 700 block of Morton Avenue NE in Crosland Park, where Glover was taken into custody without incident, sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Shunn said.

Glover was taken to the Aiken County Detention Center and charged with two counts of murder and weapon possession.

Glover is accused of killing two Aiken fathers were found dead in an Aiken hotel room July 2.

Barry J. Redding, 39, and Stephan Poole, 40, were found around 11:10 p.m. when deputies responded to a call about gunshots on Columbia Highway North, Coroner Darryl Ables said in a previous article. The hotel is off the interstate at Exit 22.

Robbery is a possible motive, sheriff’s Capt. Eric Abdullah said at the time.

“When deputies arrived, they were directed to room 229, finding a 40 year old and 39 year old black males, injured with apparent gunshot wounds and unresponsive,” Capt. Eric Abdullah said. “Both victims were pronounced deceased after Aiken County EMS arrived on scene.”

A social media post described a scene in a local business early July 3: “I had a customer (who comes in everyday happy as can be just to get her morning peach) come into the stand this morning almost in tears so I asked, ‘Are you having a good day?’ And she said not so much and broke out in tears. I asked why and she said she works there and the guys who got killed had been staying there for a while.’”
