HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A second person has been arrested in connection to the shooting on the morning of December 17, 2013 that preceded a deadly crash on Socastee Boulevard.
Jessy Larinda Bracey was taken into custody in connection with the shooting, and has been charged with attempted murder and armed robbery.
On Jan. 22, 27-year-old Michael Scott Stevenson of High Point, NC was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center and charged with armed robbery and attempted murder.
Horry County Police are still looking for 28-year-old Ronald Terrel Hamlet of Kingstree in connection to the crime.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol website stated the crash that killed one man occurred at 4481 Socastee Boulevard by the Kangaroo gas station around 5:26 a.m. on Dec. 17. Socastee Boulevard was closed for several hours in both directions because of the crash, but was partially reopened around 10:30 a.m.
Horry County Police Department's Lt. Robert Kegler said they believe the collision was intentional, and confirmed that it is connected to a reported shooting on nearby Luttie Road. HCPD stated that two people were reported to have left the scene of the collision.
The victim was identified as 35-year-old Elvan Douglas from the Myrtle Beach area. An autopsy conducted by the Horry County Coroner's Office determined that Douglas was ejected from his car and died as a result of injuries he sustained in the crash.
For the shooting, police named Hamlet and Stevenson as suspects, both wanted for attempted murder and armed robbery. More charges may surface when authorities conclude their investigation into the deadly crash.
Anyone with information leading to Hamlet's arrest should call Horry County Police at 915-TIPS.
