Two men accused of shooting a Johns Island man several times Tuesday have been arrested.

Charleston County deputies said they found Michael Davis, 19, outside his house on Joe Wright Road around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday with several gunshot wounds. Davis told deputies two men came to his house to talk to him, then pulled out handguns, tied his hands and demanded money, according to the incident report. Davis said one of the men hit him with his gun and shot him several times before they left.

Davis was airlifted to Medical University Hospital.

Juwan Brown, 18, of Logan Street in Charleston and Akeem Simmons, 25, of Grimball Road on James Island, were arrested Tuesday night and charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime.

Both are being held at the Charleston County jail. Brown was granted $200,000 bail for the firearm and kidnapping charges and no bail on the other charges. Simmons was granted $232,105 bail for some charges and is being held without bail on others.
