Police made an arrest in connection with an April shooting in Myrtle Beach.
Authorities charged 27-year-old Daniel Lee Suiter with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to online police records.
The night of April 8, officers responded to a shooting in a parking lot area east of 400 Mr. Joe White Avenue, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Through interviews and review of video, police learned a person who was shot at and Suiter had “engaged in a narcotic transaction,” according to the affidavit. The victim is also listed as a suspect in a police report.
“The victim attempted to steal the agreed upon narcotics and ran from the Defendant’s truck (passenger door) without paying for them,” the affidavit said.
Suiter exited the truck and pursued the victim with a handgun. He racked the gun’s slide and started shooting at the victim while continuing to chase the victim north on Chester Street.
“The victim stated that he felt the asphalt kicking up at the back of his feet as the bullets struck the ground,” the affidavit said.
Suiter remained jailed at the time of this report.
