Horry County police announced on Friday that Neville was wanted for attempted murder in connection to a shooting on July 19 on Chanticleer Village Drive.

An incident report obtained by WMBF News shows officers were called to the apartment complex for a shots fired report.

When police arrived, they were told by several witnesses that a woman was shot and pointed to the apartment where the victim was located.

The incident report also lists Neville as the suspect in the case.

Much of the incident report is redacted, so it’s not clear what may have led up to the shooting, or what the relationship is between the suspect and the victim.
