MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Conway man posted “To [sic] bad it didn’t happen at this club…” on the Facebook page for Pulse Ultra Club on Monday night. Myrtle Beach Police were made aware of the post, investigated the man, found out he was wanted in Georgia on criminal charges, and he was arrested on Tuesday.

Zachry Lewis Pasquale, 23, was taken into custody by the Horry County Sheriff’s Office at about 7:10 p.m. Tuesday, and as of Wednesday afternoon, remains incarcerated at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center. Warrants state he was arrested at his Conway home by the U.S. Marshals Task Force.

WMBF News received several screenshots of the Facebook profile picture for the Pulse Ultra Club in Myrtle Beach, featuring a marquee outside the club that reads: “Condolences from MB to Orlando FL.” One of the comments on this picture is from a Zachry Pasquale, stating “To bad it didn’t happen at this club…” The comment is an apparent reference to the shooting at the Orlando club of the same name that claimed the lives of 49 victims.

Lt. Joey Crosby with the Myrtle Beach Police Department said they were made aware of Pasquale’s Facebook comment, and as a result, an investigation began. Through the investigation, authorities learned Pasquale was wanted in Georgia on other charges. He was arrested and is now awaiting extradition to Georgia.

A Facebook user said that Pasquale used to be a patron at the club, but was banned earlier this year after getting into a fight there.

Pasquale’s comment was later deleted, as was, apparently, Pasquale’s Facebook account. Before it was deleted, however, a Facebook user captured images Pasquale posted of himself at a shooting range.
