A man and woman were arrested Friday in connection with attempted murder after a man was shot in the stomach area Wednesday in Myrtle Beach.

Dillan Parker Drye, 23, is charged with assault/attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, weapon/ possession of firearm or ammo by a convicted felon, and using a vehicle without permission, according to Myrtle Beach Jail records.

Morgan Emiline Dean-Morley, 33, is charged with assault/attempted murder, records show.

Myrtle Beach police were called to the corner of Seaside Place and Porcher Drive in reference to a gunshot victim shortly before 6 p.m Wednesday.

One man was shot in the abdomen area and was transported to the hospital for treatment, according to the police report. The victim’s condition is unknown, but police said he was “in and out” of consciousness during the ambulance ride and was unable to provide a statement.

Authorities weren’t able to get a statement from the victim, and detectives took over the investigation.

Neighbors reported hearing arguments coming from a home near the intersection of Porcher Drive and Seaside Place throughout the day Wednesday. And then a gunshot rang out.

Police announced through various social media channels that Drye was wanted in connection with the shooting on Thursday.

Drye was taken into custody by Florence County officers and transported to the Myrtle Beach Jail. Dean-Morley was arrested in Myrtle Beach, police said.

They are each being held at the Myrtle Beach Jail, where their bond has not been set.
