Myrtle Beach police arrested one man in connection to a murder on Collins Street earlier this week, and another suspect is still at large.
Christopher Columbus White III, 30, of Kingstree, was charged Thursday for murder in connection to the shooting Monday, according to Lt. Joey Crosby with Myrtle Beach police.
Dominick Goodwin, 23, of Myrtle Beach, was killed in the shooting, according to Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler.
Officers were called about 7:20 p.m. Monday after an unarmed Goodwin died of a gunshot he suffered in front of an apartment building on Collins Street in Myrtle Beach, off Broadway Street, according to arrest warrants.

White, along with others, assaulted Goodwin in front of the apartment building, causing Goodwin to die of a gunshot wound, the warrants said.
When police arrived on scene they questioned White, who initially denied any knowledge of the incident, warrants said. Police later learned White was injured and concealing his injury with a hat; once confronted by police White removed his hat to reveal several lacerations to his head.
White told police the injuries occurred at a different location but could not state exactly where, police said. Investigators found White had received those injuries at the incident location, “and he hid that information and his injuries from police,” warrants said.
White is also charged with obstructing justice. He remains in J. Reuben Long Detention Center on a $10,000 bond, according to court records.
On Tuesday, Myrtle Beach police identified Damiean Lamont Cantey as the suspect after an investigation, Crosby said.
Police obtained warrants for Cantey on charges of murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime, Crosby said. Cantey is considered armed and dangerous, Crosby said.
Anyone with information on Cantey’s whereabouts is asked to call police at 918-1382.
Myrtle Beach police are still investigating.
