HCPD says clock strikes midnight on ‘Cinderella’ attempted murder suspect

The man dubbed “Cinderella” on the Horry County police’s Facebook page, after allegedly leaving his shoe behind while police served warrants on someone else, was arrested in connection with attempted murder.

The department announced Kenneth 'Kelo' Jackson was a suspect in connection with an attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a pistol back in early July after saying he was wanted for questioning for another incident in June.

Police said Jackson left a red Nike Air Force One shoe behind while authorities were attempting to execute felony arrest warrants on another person on June 15. Police initially said they were looking for Jackson for questioning after he fled while they we’re trying to serve the warrants, then later said he was wanted in connection with an attempted murder.

That incident was reported June 29 when a 25-year-old man was shot at an apartment building at 200 Rittenhouse Road in the Socastee area, according to a police report.

Police allege the victim got into a fight with the suspect and another man. What started as an argument soon became physical, the report says. During the scuffle, a gun fell from the suspect’s pants pocket, and he picked it up and fired at the victim, authorities said.

Horry County police recently arrested Jackson with the help of the U.S. Marshal Task Force, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, and the ATF Gang Task Force.

Jackson, 28, of Myrtle Beach, remained at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Tuesday where his bond had not yet been set Tuesday afternoon, according to online records.
