A Longs man has been charged with murder after an exchange of gunfire outside a Finklea area nightclub killed a Tabor City man, the Horry County Police Department said Wednesday.
Dimnique Lequan Bellamy, 23, was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center near Conway at 1:40 p.m. Tuesday, charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, an Horry County Police Department news release and mail records show.
Bellamy is charged in the death of Laquint Oneil Boyd, 37, of Tabor City. He died of a gunshot wound to the chest following gunfire at the PNR Club west of Loris, said Horry County Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick.
Bellamy was taken into custody in Little River by “US Marshal Danile Spencer and his team,” the news release said.
Officers responding to an early morning call at PNR Club at 258 North Green Sea Road, Loris, met vehicles speeding towards McLeod Loris hospital, and found witnesses and security officers still at the nightclub, an HCPD report said.
A PNR security officer told police that an argument between two men inside the club spilled outside, where gunfire erupted. The security officer told police he began shooting at those engaged in the gunfire, before they fled in a red Dodge Charger and a silver Nissan Altima, the report said.
