MYRTLE BEACH — A second Myrtle Beach man was arrested on Thursday in connection with a shooting at a club during the weekend that left a woman hurt, authorities said Friday.
Kenneth Earl Jackson, 24, of Myrtle Beach was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center Thursday charged with attempted murder, according to jail records. He was being held on $10,000 bail Friday.
It was unclear how Jackson was taken into custody, but he was arrested by Horry County police officers, said Capt. David Knipes with the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
On Tuesday, Myrtle Beach police took Robert Cameron Perry, 21, into custody and charged him with attempted murder in the shooting that occurred about 5:45 a.m. Sunday at Club 501 located at 503 Eighth Ave. N., police said.
On Monday, police released surveillance photos of two men they wanted to question in connection with the shooting.
Officers were called to the club for gunshots being fired and when they arrived they learned a 25-year-old woman had been shot in the leg and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, according to the report.
A witness told police that two men argued and when a club employee asked one of the men to leave, that man got upset and threatened to shoot up the club, according to the report. Soon after, a witness told police that a dark colored sport utility vehicle drove by the club and about six gunshots were fired from the rear passenger seat at the club.
