Two men were taken into custody on suspicion of murder after they were accused of shooting a man in a South Carolina public bathroom. The alleged murder occurred in Myrtle Beach at approximately 11:29 p.m. on June 7.

Myrtle Beach officers reported hearing gunshots near the public restroom, which was located near the 12th Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard area. Officers were able to make it to the scene within seconds due to the fact that they were already in the area. At the scene, they found a man located in a bathroom that was located in the 1100 block of Withers Alley. The officers provided medical aid upon arrival.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital where he later passed away as a result of his injuries. The two accused men, both North Carolina residents, were taken into custody at approximately 12:29 a.m. on June 8 near 29th Avenue N and Kings Highway. They were both charged with murder and weapons offenses. One of the men was also charged with drug offenses.

Being accused of murder or other violent crimes can have a major impact on a person’s life. In some cases, an alleged offender could face a lengthy prison sentence. However, a criminal defense attorney may open a separate investigation into the alleged crimes, especially if there is only circumstantial evidence available or if there is any doubt that accused person was involved. The attorney may look for inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case while attempting to have certain evidence be deemed inadmissible by the court.
