GREENSBORO, NC (WMBF) - A North Carolina man has been arrested in connection with a Memorial Day weekend shooting in Myrtle Beach.

Tristan Datre Payne, 24, was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force at 10 a.m. Tuesday in North Carolina.

The Greensboro Police Department charged Payne with possession of firearm by felon, possession of stolen firearm, and fugitive from justice for the Myrtle Beach Police Department accessory after the fact of attempted murder charge.

On May 30, warrants were issued by the MBPD for accessory after the fact of attempted murder. The charge stemmed from a May 24 shooting incident at the Fountainbleau Inn motel in Myrtle Beach, Capt. David Knipes confirmed.

On May 24, at around 4:15 a.m., Myrtle Beach officers were called to the motel on Flagg Street and 7th Avenue North. One victim was shot in the leg. Surveilance video has since been released from the shooting to help police in the investigation.

Members of the JFTF began conducting surveillance in an effort to locate and arrest Payne. At approximately 9:35 a.m., Payne was positively identified as a passenger in a Nissan Altima. By 10 a.m., Payne was arrested and taken into custody without incident. At the time of the arrest, Payne was in possession of a stolen handgun and ammunition.

Payne was also served with an outstanding Guilford County Order for Arrest for failing to appear on a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge. Payne was given a $266,000 bond for all his charges.
