CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – Horry County police say they have arrested two suspects for a shooting that wounded two at a club near Conway this past weekend.

Horry County Police Department spokesperson Krystal Dotson says Ebony Shatell Richardson was identified as the second suspect. Booking records reflect she was booked in the J Reuben Long Detention Center on Tuesday on three counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and unlawful carrying of a pistol.

Dotson says Riccardo Corley was arrested on Tuesday as well and charged with three counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and possession of firearms and ammunition. The arrest warrant also indicates Corley was convicted in 2009 of armed robbery.

According to the Horry County Police Department, officers were called to Deal’s Club, formerly known as Dozier Market, on Highway 905 Sunday, March 19, around 3:30 a.m. The report says an altercation occurred inside the club, and escalated outside the building in the parking lot.

The two arrest warrants say Corley and Richardson each pulled out a handgun during the argument and shot at the victims.  Officers found both dull silver spent casings and shiny brass colored spent rounds at the scene, the report says.

Police say two people were shot and one male victim was released from the hospital, but a female victim remains in critical condition. The police report also says two cars at the location were struck by gunfire and damaged.

Officers ask that anyone who was at the club during the shooting or has knowledge of the incident to call the Horry County Police Investigation Tip Line at (843) 915-8477 or (843) 915-TIPS.
