An N.C. man was extradited to Horry County this week on attempted murder charges in connection to a 2014 Memorial Day weekend shooting that left one man injured.
Cornelius Ray Woods, 41, was extradited to Horry County on attempted murder charges in connection to a 2014 shooting at Fountainbleau Inn, according to Lt. Joey Crosby with Myrtle Beach police.
Woods was served with warrants Friday, police confirmed.
Woods, of High Point, N.C., was arrested in North Carolina in June 2014 in connection to the shooting at Fountainbleau Inn, located at 701 Flagg St. in Myrtle Beach. He is charged with attempted murder, use of a firearm in a felony, and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person related to the shooting.

Woods was on federal probation at the time of the shooting and not allowed to leave North Carolina. He was being held in jail in Guilford County, N.C., for an unrelated shooting in High Point, police said, before he was allowed extradition Thursday.
Myrtle Beach police charged two others connected to the Fountainbleau shooting in 2014.
Tristan Datre Payne, 24, was charged in August by Myrtle Beach police with accessory after the fact of attempted murder in connection to the May 24 shooting in Myrtle Beach that injured a man. The Greensboro Police Department also charged him with possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm, as well as fugitive from justice in connection with the May 24 incident in Myrtle Beach.
Keyanna Desirnae Pegram, 21, of High Point, was arrested in June and is charged with attempted murder.
The video police released from Fountainbleau showed three men walking into a room at the motel around 4:30 a.m. May 24, 2014 before the shooting occurred.
Less than a minute later on the video a man stumbles out and a gunshot can be seen hitting the victim in the leg and then a box in the hallway. A man in a white tank top and black shorts chases after the victim, who limps down the hallway.
The two other men come out of the room and go in the opposite direction down the hallway before the suspect returns to the room and runs into the hallway followed by a woman. The woman continues on, but the suspect returns to the room before he leaves again.
Police found the room empty and learned that two people jumped from the second floor hallway after the shooting.
Officers watched the video and reported the suspect appeared to have a gun in his left hand and possibly a knife in his right hand, according to the report. Officers found a 9 mm shell casing and a deformed bullet in the hallway.
Woods remains at J. Reuben Long Detention Center awaiting bond, according to jail records.
There were seven other confirmed shootings in Myrtle Beach during the 2014 Memorial Day weekend that left three people dead and six injured. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the beach during that weekend for Atlantic Beach Bikefest or for a long holiday weekend.
