The identity and charges of a 21-year-old man named as a suspect in a 2016 double murder case have been released.
Police arrested Aliga Campbell without incident on Wednesday, authorities said.
Campbell is charged with two counts of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, police said.
On Wednesday, officers thought they had located the suspect along White Street when they dispatched SWAT team members because of the violent nature of the crime, according to a Capt. Joey Crosby, spokesman with Myrtle Beach police.

After officials investigated, the suspect turned himself in, police said.
The charges stem from an incident that happened on July 23, 2016, according to police. That night, Myrtle Beach firefighters reported they heard gunshots and then banging on the fire station’s door, which faced Warren Street.
They then found Dameion Hakeem Alston, 26, and Marquis Jamal Burgess, 27, outside, both critically wounded by apparent gunshot wounds.
Both men were taken to Grand Strand Medical Center where they later died from their injuries, according to the Horry County Coroner’s Office.
Calvin Derrell Ford, 29, was previously arrested without incident in 2016 in connection with the shooting. Ford faces two counts of murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and possession of a firearm as a felon for the shooting, which are still pending.
