Deadly Myrtle Beach strip club shooting suspect gets 20 years

29-year-old Cliston Bellamy was sentenced to 20 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in connection to a deadly shooting inside a Myrtle Beach strip club in 2014.

CONWAY — 15th Circuit Solicitor Jimmy Richardson’s office announced a man pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter charges for a deadly shooting inside a Myrtle Beach strip club in 2014 and was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday.

According to a press release, police said 29-year-old Cliston Bellamy brought a gun to a fight among gang members at Smokehouse Billiards, and shot and killed Jaquann Price of Longs.

Authorities on a local, state, and federal level searched for Bellamy, who was identified quicky after, and he was arrested in May 2015 in Columbia.

Smokehouse Billiards closed in 2015 after Solicitor Richardson deemed it a public nuisance.
