MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Two more suspects in a shooting on Ocean Boulevard over the weekend were denied bond in court Wednesday.

Dennis Dashawn Stewart, 20, and Antonio Trayvon Brown, Jr., 22, both of Cheraw, are charged with eight counts of attempted murder and weapon crimes. Stewart was denied bond because of the attempted murder charges. Brown will have to face a circuit court judge for his bond hearing because he was out on bond for a previous murder charge in another county.
