Man, woman arrested after Myrtle Beach motel slaying

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) – A 24-year-old man and 19-year-old woman have been arrested following a deadly shooting at a Myrtle Beach motel last week.

Citing online jail records, The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that Lourie Earl Maurice Pearson was charged Sunday night with murder in connection with the slaying of 23-year-old Pierre Allen.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler says Allen died at a hospital shortly after being shot early Friday at the Fountainbleau Inn.

Jail records show that Tysheria Di Quaysia Salters is charged with accessory after the fact to a felony and was also arrested Sunday. It’s unclear whether they have attorneys.

The shooting occurred as the city was beginning to greet visitors for the annual Atlantic Beach Bikefest. Police have not said whether the shooting is connected to the festival.
