Five Myrtle Beach men were indicted by an Horry County grand jury on charges they tried to shoot a man walking in the city, according to court records.
Timothy Jerome Alston, 18, DaShawn Scott Brockington, 20, Darren TyQuann Campbell, 17, William James Lee Campbell, 19, and Raymond Monta Randall, 18, all of Myrtle Beach, were each indicted on a charge of attempted murder, records show.
The charges are related to an incident that occurred at 2:13 a.m. Nov. 7 in the area of Osceola Street and Mr. Joe White Avenue, police said. A 20-year-old man told police he was shot in the hip by men who drove by him as he was walking from the Fourth Quarter Bar while talking on the telephone to his mother.
The victim told police a black Chrysler 300 drove by him and one of the people inside the vehicle shot him, according to the police report. A taxi cab driver in the area told police he saw a dark in color vehicle slow down and the people inside talked to the victim before someone reached out the vehicle with a gun and shot at the victim.
The driver said the vehicle sped away and he called police to report the incident, according to the report. Another witness told police he was going east on Mr. Joe White Avenue when he saw the vehicle fail to stop at the stop sign at Osceola Street.
The victim, who was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment, was able to identify one person involved in the shooting and through the investigation detectives were able to identify the other men, according to a news release.
