HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An 18-year-old Tabor City, NC man was arrested Sunday and charged with attempted murder after he allegedly shot a man twice on June 8 near Loris, causing him to undergo multiple surgeries, according to police.

Zachary Dasacher Green was arrested by Horry County Police and charged with attempted murder nearly one month after the shooting incident occurred, according to jail records.

On June 8, police responded to the 1500 block of Kingscrest Drive, near Loris, to find the shooting victim at the scene. Emergency services arrived and transported the victim to a nearby hospital by helicopter, the police report states. The victim told police Green was the shooter.

A witness said he heard the shots and came outside to find the victim laying in the roadway with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the abdomen, the report states. Witnesses said that the victim was also in possession of a firearm, and the suspect may have been shot during the altercation as well.

Officers notified dispatch to check area hospitals for gunshot victims, according to the report. Officers were then notified that a man arrived at a North Carolina hospital, and the Columbus County Sheriff’s Department responded to the hospital.

The firearm was found behind a water heater in the master bedroom of the residence at Kingscrest Drive, the report states.

Arrest warrants state that Green attempted to kill the victim, and he was arrested on July 3 for attempted murder. He remains incarcerated at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, as of Monday afternoon, according to jail records.
