MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — A suspect in a viral Ocean Boulevard shooting suspect was denied bond Wednesday morning on an attempted murder charge.

Edward Arnell Williams, 37, was booked into the Myrtle Beach Jail at 3:34 p.m. Tuesday on charges of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and discharging a firearm into a vehicle, records show.

Williams was given a $100,000 surety bond on the other two charges.

Myrtle Beach Police Chief Amy Prock wanted a bond that reflects South Carolina’s intolerance for this type of behavior.

The judge said Williams is a flight risk and a high danger to the community.

David Wayne Adams was named as the person who was driving the truck that was shot into, according to officials.

Adams has a long list of prior charges and convictions, mostly traffic related, according to a South Carolina Law Enforcement Criminal History record obtained by News13.

Recent charges include transporting alcohol with seal broken on April 15, use of vehicle without permission on April 17, and reckless driving and driving under suspension on April 23, according to the document.

Adams was also convicted multiple times of crimes including burglary, driving without a license, DUI, and domestic violence, according to the document.

“I was in the gray truck, driving down the boulevard and this black car was in front of me and he stopped immediately and so I tapped the back end of it and so he came out, we exchanged words and then he put the gun in through the passenger side and tried to shoot me and I floored it and was squealing tires to get out of there,” Adams said.

Adams was not shot during the incident, though a gunshot could be heard in the video.

Williams was initially taken into custody April 20 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, where he was held on an extradition charge.

Video of the incident appears to show an argument between people in two vehicles. A person gets out of an SUV with a gun and puts the gun in the window of a truck while a woman stands in front of the truck.

While the gun is in the window of the truck, a gunshot can be heard going off as the truck drives away. It’s unclear what happened in the moments before the video.
