HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A suspect is being held in connection with the shooting death of a woman whose body was found in a car, along with a small child, in the Green Sea area earlier this month.
According to information from Krystal Dotson, spokesperson for the Horry County Police Department, 27-year-old Jakeem Bryant, 27, of Tabor City, North Carolina, is being held in Columbus County, N.C.
HCPD investigators have warrants for Bryant's arrest on charges of murder and use of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, Dotson said.
