MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man was taken into custody Thursday and charged in connection with a January 2016 shooting in Myrtle Beach.

According to online records from the Myrtle Beach Police Department, Nelson Haziel Gonzalez, 33, was charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of 27th Avenue North on Jan. 13, 2016 in reference to shots fired, according to an MBPD incident report.

The victim said he and two witnesses were going to go for a walk when they noticed a black Toyota RAV4 sitting behind a house. They wanted to make sure everything was OK due to a recent shooting at an apartment complex, the report stated.

According to the victim, they walked past and the suspect pulled a firearm.

“The victim verbally told officers that the suspect always shows him the firearm every time they see one another,” the report stated.

Law enforcement was then told a second suspect leaned out the passenger-side window of the vehicle as it began to drive down the street, pointed the firearm at the victim and fired one round, according to the incident report.
