An arrest has been made in Monday night's double shooting in Myrtle Beach at the Jet Age Cafe at 1401 Mr. Joe White Avenue, according to Myrtle Beach Police Captain David Knipes.
Knipes said one of the suspects Davonte Shepard, 21, of Myrtle Beach was arrested Tuesday and is being held in the Myrtle Beach Jail awaiting trial. His bond hearing is set for 9:00 Thursday morning, according to Knipes.
Shepard is charged with Possesion of a Weapon During a Violent Crime, two counts of Attempted Murder and he faces a drug charge because when officers were taking him to jail they found two white pills on him, according to a police report.
The second suspect has not been arrested, but Knipes said more arrests are expected soon. He is believed to be driving a white Cadillac Escalade or a Chevy Avalanche with brown trim.
The shooting happened Monday around 10 pm. A woman who lives off of Mr. Joe White Avenue called 9-1-1 to report she heard gunshots and saw someone lying in the street who had possibly been shot.
Officers responded to the Jet Age Cafe where one shooting victim was found laying face down in the business with blood coming from his upper leg, according to the police report. He was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for his injuries.
Police found another victim at the intersection of Orange and Crimson Streets, according to the report.
Knipes said both of the men's injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
The report adds another man was grazed by a bullet that went through his pant leg, but did not hit him.
