HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Horry County Police have taken a second shooting suspect into custody after two separate night club shootings over the weekend.
Lt. Strickland, spokesman for Horry County Police, said a shooting was reported shortly after 2:30 a.m. at Celeb's along US-17 Bypass. Investigators say it appears gunshots were fired both inside and outside of the club.
One victim was transported by a private vehicle to the Grand Strand Regional Medical Center to receive treatment.
Strickland said two other victims were also wounded in a separate shooting that investigators believe took place at The G Spot on Highway 90. Officers learned of the incident after the two victims showed up to Seacoast Medical Center with gunshot wounds.
Upon further investigation, it was determined that the two victims were actually suspects in the G Spot shooting. Sgt. Robert Kegler with Horry County Police said as the club was closing, a suspect grabbed a gun and pointed it at a crowd of people.
When a security officer asked him to put down the gun, the suspect then pointed the gun at the officer, causing the officer to fire his own weapon. That suspect was then struck in the torso.
A second suspect then allegedly picked up the gun, aiming it at the security officer and the officer fired again, striking that suspect in the arm.
Both suspects then took themselves to the Seacoast Medical Center and have been identified as William Tykee Boyd, 27, of Tabor City and Michael Jermaine Strickland, 28, of Loris.
Strickland has already been charged with simple possession of marijuana and Kegler said other charges are pending at this time.
Boyd has been charged with pointing and presenting a firearm at a person. Bond was set at $5,000 and he was released Monday evening, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
