WOODRUFF, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Two of three suspects arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting in Woodruff who were arrested at Myrtle Beach are back in the Upstate, according to police.

Woodruff Police Chief Alan Bledsoe said Tyrus Murray, 19, and Marcus Todd, 17, are in custody at the Spartanburg County Detention Center after they were extradited from Horry County during the weekend.

Police said officers found a car with bullet holes in the front and rear passenger doors on April 29 and at the time of the drive-by shooting, two people were inside the car, including a minor child. Both were unharmed.

Bledsoe said once the suspect's car was identified, they determined her boyfriend, Murray, was the shooter and tracked him, the car's owner, Shawnie Wilson and an accomplice, Todd, in Myrtle Beach after they were arrested by Horry County Police on May 1.

Murray faces two counts of attempted murder charges, reckless driving and marijuana possession while Todd was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony. 

Police said Wilson will be extradited once her unlawful possession of a firearm case is handled in Horry County.
