HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - One person faces charges after a deadly shooting in Horry County.

Asia Beaty, 26, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder in 22-year-old Christa Lee’s shooting death inside a home on Oak Grove Road, near Conway.

A police report obtained by WMBF News states that officers from the Horry County Police Department found Lee in a back bedroom with a gunshot wound after a shooting was reported.

An arrest warrant for Beaty shows that she armed herself with a gun and took an Uber to the home along Oak Grove Road, where she got into a fight with Lee.

“During the altercation, Ms. Beaty discharged the handgun inside the residence at which time the bullet traveled through an interior door striking the victim in the head resulting in the victim’s death,” according to the arrest warrant.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Michelle McSpadden said Lee was originally from Florence but was living near Conway.
