MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police announced the arrest of a man accused of shooting and killing another man the day before Thanksgiving.

Authorities charged 23-year-old Ladarius Kaishawn Evans of Cades, S.C. with murder in the death of 42-year-old Adam Jarrett from Tabor City.

Officers were called around 2 a.m. Wednesday to the Ocean Crest Inn and Suites located at 6th Avenue South and Ocean Boulevard where they found two people shot.

Both were taken to the hospital where Jarrett later died.

Investigators determined the two men were involved in a fight at another location that escalated and the two fired shots at each other in the parking lot of the hotel.

No bond was set for Evans during his bond hearing on Tuesday due to the fact that a municipal judge can’t set bond for a murder charge. He will remain in custody until a district judge can set bond for him.
