Man surrenders in Myrtle Beach in carjacking death

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A man wanted in a carjacking death in Myrtle Beach last week has surrendered to police.

Capt. David Knipes says 24-year-old Swava Lamere McCrea of Myrtle Beach surrendered to officers Monday.

McCrea is charged with murder in the shooting death of 21-year-old Joshua Pyatt, who was found in his vehicle June 24. McCrea also is charged with carjacking, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and possession of a pistol.

Knipes says more arrests are expected.

Witnesses told police that Pyatt was in his car when they heard four gunshots and saw a man get into the car and drive away.

It was not clear if McCrea has an attorney.
