MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man wanted for a shooting at a Myrtle Beach motel during Bikefest in 2014 was extradited to Myrtle Beach from North Carolina on Thursday and served warrants for attempted murder on Friday, Myrtle Beach Police confirm.

Cornelius Ray Woods, 41, of High Point, NC, was identified in 2014 as the shooter in the Fountainbleau shooting that happened over Memorial Day weekend, and warrants were issued.

Woods was arrested in May 2014 by High Point Police for an unrelated shooting in their area, and was booked into the Guildford County jail.

On Thursday, Woods was extradited to South Carolina by the Horry County Sheriff's Office, and booked in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, according to a Myrtle Beach Police spokesman. On Friday morning, Woods was arrested by Myrtle Beach Police and served warrants for attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

On the morning May 24, 2014, officers responded to the Fountainbleau Inn on Flagg Street, where one victim was shot in the leg and was taken to a nearby hospital. The investigation revealed that the shooting incident was over narcotics, according to investigators.

After surveillance video was released of the incident, two people were arrested: 21-year-old Keyanna Pegram, and 24-year-old Tristan Datre Payne, both from North Carolina.
