MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Two additional suspects have been arrested following a reported shooting in Myrtle Beach last week.

Rondric Smith, 19, and Jamal Daniels, 20, both of Myrtle Beach were arrested for attempted murder, according to the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

The MBPD and Horry County Police Department responded to Grey Street, which is located off Mr. Joe White Avenue, at around 6:30 p.m., according to Lt. Crosby with MBPD. According to the police report, a woman told police that a suspect shot up her vehicle. The report states that officer saw visible damage to the vehicle, totaling about $1,500.

"Based on the bullet trajectory, it is our belief that the shots fired, were in retaliation for shots fired from Grey Street," the police report states.

Residents and drivers were blocked from going into an apartment complex in Myrtle Beach following the incident.

One person was questioned at around 7:20 p.m., about 90 minutes after police gathered in reference to the incident.

Shortly after, "as soon as it was believed the responsible party was in custody the residents were allowed to return to their homes," said Lt. Denis with the Horry County Police Department.

Police were alerted of a red Camaro possibly involved in the incident. Officers said they observed a vehicle matching that description and attempted to stop the car.

“The vehicle fled from officers and was located in the area of 48th Avenue North and Wild Iris Drive, in the Horry County Police Department jurisdiction,” Crosby said.

Two subjects were located and taken in for questioning to determine their involvement in the shooting. Detectives interviewed the subjects and they were later released.

On January 10, William James Lee Campbell, 23, was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center. He was charged with attempted murder and felon in possession of a firearm in connection with the shooting incident, according to jail records.

Desman Chestnut, of Little River, was also arrested in connection with this incident and charged with attempted murder, according to Lt. Joey Crosby with Myrtle Beach Police.
