MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach man remained in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Monday following his arrest for allegedly opening fire on a vehicle traveling in the area of Highway 15 and Harrelson Boulevard.

According to online jail records, Jasseir Jameik Wilson, 22, is charged with attempted murder; possession of a weapon during a violent crime; felon in possession of a firearm; pointing and presenting firearms at a person; assault and battery; reckless driving; driving under a suspended license; littering; and failure to stop for a blue light.

According to a Myrtle Beach Police Department incident report, officers were dispatched to the area of Highway 15 and Harrelson Boulevard shortly after 8:30 p.m., Thursday in reference to possible shots fired.

Police met two witnesses in the cellphone waiting lot at the Myrtle Beach International Airport. The two said while they were traveling eastbound on Harrelson Boulevard and approaching Highway 15 when they saw a man get out of a vehicle two lanes away and pull out a handgun.

“The male then pointed the handgun at another white vehicle that was approximately 50 yards behind them and fired four to five shots,” the report stated.

Additionally, the witnesses told law enforcement they saw both the vehicles head northbound on Highway 15, at which point they called police.

Officers reportedly found several round casings in the roadway near Harrelson Boulevard and Highway 15.
