Police said the investigation is still ongoing, and they would like to thank and encourage the continued cooperation of the community.

Lisa Bourcier, spokesperson for Horry County Schools, said McNeil was a 2014 graduate of Myrtle Beach High School.

McNeil’s sister Lay Lay sent this message to WMBF News about her brother:

He was the best father, friend, brother cousin, son etc. You name it, that’s what he was. He kept a smile on everyone’s faces. He’s not what people are thinking. He’s not a “thug,” he didn’t deserve this. Everywhere we went with him, no matter if it was a hard time, he would make you laugh at the stupid things. I want him to be remembered as the handsome, funny man he was, not what people think about him.

Anyone who has any information about this shooting or anyone involved is encouraged to contact the Myrtle Beach Police Department at 843-918-1382. Callers can remain anonymous.
