MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police arrested a man and charged him in connection with a fight in 2005 that ultimately resulted in the death of another person.

According to online records from the Myrtle Beach Police Department, Damien Shawn Scott, 39, was taken into custody early Thursday morning and charged with involuntary manslaughter.

His charges stems from a Dec. 7, 2005 incident that happened at 1709 N. Ocean Blvd., in Myrtle Beach.

The victim told police he had gotten into a fight with the suspect after asking him who he was looking for on the property of the apartment, according to a Myrtle Beach police incident report.

According to law enforcement, the victim stated the suspect then began to swing at him and try to fight.

The man’s girlfriend called police and Scott reportedly ran southbound on Withers Drive toward 16th Avenue North before officers arrived.

According to police, the victim was asked if he needed an ambulance, which he declined. He also indicated he did not wish to file a report.

Eventually, the victim said he needed to use the restroom and went inside. Police eventually left.

Around 15 minutes later, police were dispatched to the same location for a 911 call after the victim was found unconscious, the report stated.

The victim’s girlfriend had found him fallen over the toilet and his feet had turned gray, according to the police report.

According to the report, the victim, identified as Harold Gene Gibson Jr., 43, later died.

A description of the suspect was given, and an officer said he had previously seen him in the area before the original fight call came out but did not conduct a traffic stop, the report stated.

    Several people who live on the side streets of Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach recently received a letter saying they need to get rid of obstructions in front of their homes. The city says that’s because the space could be used for public parking. Around 30 people came out to the city council meeting on Monday to speak out about the issue.
