A suspect was arrested and faces several charges after a teen was shot during a carjacking last week in Little River, according to the Horry County Police Department.
Trashawn Travon Hemingway, 18, of Little River faces charges of attempted murder, taking a motor vehicle while in operation by another person and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, HCPD spokeswoman Mikayla Moskov said in a news release.
The shooting happened last Friday near Oscar Road and Jones Lane.
Evidence and information acquired during authorities’ investigation suggests Hemingway carjacked a vehicle from the 16-year-old victim, who was shot multiple times during the incident, the release said.
The victim was taken to the hospital, according to a police report.
Hemingway remained jailed at J. Reuben Long Detention Center at the time of this report.
