The number of people charged in connection with the Aug. 21 shooting death of a Socastee man now stands at seven and the investigation continues.

Horry County Police Department officers arrested Dalton Wade Morrow, 19, Folly Road, Myrtle Beach; David Michael Walling, 32, Strickland Road, Galivants Ferry and Maura Rhea Boman, 22, Strand Village Mobile Home Park, and charged them with being accessories after the fact to a felony or murder, Lt. Keith Strickland said.

Those three join:

Alex Lorenzo Robinson, 28, who is charged with murder and burglary first degree, according to the J Reuben Long Detention Center’s Web site. He remains jailed without bond, according to the site.

George Gray, 28, 1428 Formosa Drive, Conway, was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 2:05 a.m. He is being held without bond, according to the detention center's booking Website.

Russell Dale Griffin, 20, and Savannah Michelle Griffin, 19, both of 5320 Strand Drive, Myrtle Beach, are each charged with one count of being an accessory after the fact to a felony or murder, according to the detention center's booking site.

All are charged in connection with the 2:10 a.m. Aug. 21 shooting death of Sylvester Smart, Jr., at a residence on Strand Drive in Socastee, according to Strickland.

Horry County Coroner Robert Edge said Smart, 28, died of a gunshot wound at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center about 3:10 a.m. Saturday.

Strickland said the investigation was still on going and described the case as “complicated” and noted there could be further arrests and those already arrested could face additional charges.
