A North Carolina man has been charged with murder in connection with a shooting in Myrtle Beach on Saturday, which officials claimed was caused by a parking disagreement.

Garner’s bond was refused on Sunday during his initial appearance in Myrtle Beach Municipal Court.

According to Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard, Cedric Reddick, 31, of Columbia, died on the scene of several gunshot wounds.

The incident occurred shortly before 11 p.m. on the 2300 block of North Ocean Boulevard. Witnesses told News13 that they observed the body on the road.

Mayor Brenda Bethune told News13 Sunday afternoon that a parking dispute turned violent.

“It is terrible that some people chose to use violence to resolve something as basic as a parking conflict. “I believe that overshadows the true meaning of Memorial Day,” stated Bethune.

Authorities said many persons had been detained as part of the police investigation, but no other information was immediately available.

Bethune described the violent outburst as an exceptional event in what had generally been a solid start to the city’s formal summer tourism season.

“We’ve had so many people in town with very few incidents,” remarked Bethune. “I’ve been out the last two nights, and the crowd really has been well-managed and well-behaved.”

It isn’t the first time a shooting has occurred on the Grand Strand on one of the city’s busiest weekends.

Sandy Gaddis Barnwell was shot and died on Ocean Boulevard during Memorial Day weekend 2014, in an unsolved case.

News13 stated that two persons were hurt around the region during the holiday in 2021.

Anthony Griffin, 20, received a hefty jail sentence in January after pleading guilty to assault and battery in a 2020 gang-related shooting on Ocean Boulevard.

And the guy arrested in a 2023 shooting in the same neighborhood that went viral on social media was later denied bond.

News13 has contacted Myrtle Beach police for further information on Sunday’s event, and we will give updates on-air and online as more information becomes available.
