MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Authorities have made an arrest in one shooting out of several that happened last weekend in Myrtle Beach during the Atlantic Beach Bike Fest.

Myrtle Beach Police released a video of the scene earlier this week that showed several people going in and out of a motel room at the Fountainbleau Inn Saturday night.

Friday afternoon, police said a suspect -- who was already on federal probation -- has been arrested in North Carolina and is being held on a $1 million bond, police said.

The incident happened Saturday night at  the Fountainbleau Inn located at 701 Flagg Street when a person was shot in the leg.

 Upon arrival, the victim and subjects were no longer on scene; however, a crime scene was located outside room 210.  A video was recovered from the hotel which did show the shooting, and the subjects involved.  The victim was located at the hospital and was uncooperative. 

Upon further investigation, information was received from High Point Police Department in North Carolina. This information included the possible identity of the individuals involved.  Through a joint investigation with the High Point Police Department, investigators were able to identify all parties involved.

"Our investigation revealed that this incident was over narcotics. The shooter in the video was identified as Cornelius Ray Woods, 41 of High Point. At the time of the shooting, Woods was on federal probation and was not allowed to leave the state," Myrtle Beach Police said.

 Woods is currently in jail in Guilford County for an unrelated shooting in High Point.  He was charged with Attempted Murder and is being held on $1 million bond for their charges. 

The Myrtle Beach Police Department has issued warrants for Woods for Attempted Murder, Use of a Firearm in a Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person.  Additional charges are expected for other parties involved.
