Myrtle Beach triple homicide during Bike Fest sparks closer look at Charleston County gangs

The (Charleston) Post & CourierJune 2, 2014 

Days before Christmas 2012, Keith Alextruss Williams showed up at the Game Room, a Ladson nightclub. Deputies knew him to have ties to “Town of Lincolnville,” or TOL, a local gang.

He partied alongside Nathaniel Nelson Green, a rapper from the town. Officers knew of Green, too. He had done prison time for shooting someone amid a crowd at a Thanksgiving parade in Mount Pleasant.

The two got together again a week ago in Myrtle Beach. They went there to party May 24 during Atlantic Beach Bikefest. But that night, they found themselves in another brawl. Gunshots resounded, and Williams went down.

Green ran to the Bermuda Sands Resort. A gunman followed and unleashed another volley, missing Green but hitting three other friends from the Summerville area.
