MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WMBF) – A third suspect wanted in connection to a burglary that ended with a Murrells Inlet homeowner being shot is now in custody.
Levi Mcilwraith was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jason Lesley said that Mcilwraith surrendered himself to authorities in Horry County.
