Both victims survived their injuries.
McClure is also wanted in South Carolina's Lexington County for
the murder of Tycus Toland, 29, and the attempted murder of Vonkeith Toland,
33, on April 26.
The Toland brothers were shot in front of Vonkeith Toland's home
on Bushberry Road in Pelion, South Carolina, said Major John Allard of the
Lexington County Sheriff's Department.
McClure and an acquaintance, identified as 22-year-old Justin
Butler, of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, arranged to buy a vehicle that Vonkeith
Toland advertised on Craigslist, Allard said.

Tycus Toland was shot in the upper torso and found dead in the
front yard of his brother's home, Allard said.
Vonkeith Toland also was shot in the torso and was taken to a
hospital, Allard said. Butler and McClure also broke into Vonkeith Toland's
home, and both face a first-degree burglary charge, Allard said.
Witnesses said the suspects were a heavy-set African-American male
with short dreadlock hair braids and a taller, thin African-American male
with closely cropped hair, Allard said.
The shooting suspects fled the scene in a light blue or silver SUV
that was not the vehicle for sale. The motive and circumstances of the
shooting are still under investigation, Allard said today.
The Lexington County Sheriff's Department determined there was a
possible connection between the shooting in Fairfield and the murder and
attempted murder in South Carolina. Deputies contacted the Fairfield Police
Department and asked for assistance, Fairfield police Lt. Stephen Crane said.
During the first week in May, Fairfield police helped Lexington
County authorities identify the Tolands' murder and attempted murder suspect
as Butler, who has an extensive criminal history in Fairfield, Crane said.
Butler was arrested Friday in Alabama, Crane said.
Fairfield police also helped Lexington County authorities identify
McClure as the second Tolands' murder and attempted murder suspect, and the
Lexington County Sheriff's Department got arrest warrants for McClure on
Saturday, Crane said.
Solano County sheriff's Deputy Jackson Harris said McClure is
still at Solano County Jail, and that South Carolina authorities have not yet
submitted paperwork to extradite him to Lexington County.
Allard said the Lexington County Sheriff's Department has a
detainer on McClure in the event that his release from the Solano County Jail
