DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Police have named a suspect in a shooting that took place Tuesday at 433 Hudson St., in which two men were shot.

Police said when they arrived to the residence they found Dewayne Holmes with a gunshot wound to his shoulder lying in the hallway of the home.

They were then approached by Raymond Maning, who had a gunshot wound to his right thigh.

Maning told police he was sitting outside the home when a black man with his face covered approached the house and began shooting. He said he did not believe the shooter was targeting him.

Holmes told police he and Lavonte E. Sol, 22, were in a physical altercation at Safari Lounge a few days earlier. Police later named Sol the shooting suspect.

Holmes and Maning were taken to Halifax Hospital.

Sol is described as being black, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with any information on Sol's whereabouts is asked to contact the Daytona Beach Police Department at 386-671-5100.
