Jordan Johnson, a Conway man, was arrested for pointing gun in downtown Myrtle Beach

After allegedly pointing a gun at a family on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk earlier this month, a Conway man is out on bond.

Jordan Johnson, 20, was arrested and charged with five counts of pointing and presenting firearms at a person and unlawfully carrying a firearm.

According to a police report, officers with the Myrtle Beach Police Department were called to the area of 5th Avenue North and North Ocean Boulevard on Nov. 9.

The police were called to the boardwalk at around 11:20 p.m. after someone pointed a gun at a group of people.

Police later reported that one of the victims was walking her family along the boardwalk near the SkyWheel when they heard three men yelling racial slurs and acting disorderly. When the family turned around and walked away, the three men appeared to follow them and yell at them.

As she walked up to her husband, one of the suspects, later identified as Johnson, allegedly grabbed his gun and asked “You want some of this?” The victim then said Johnson pointed the gun at her entire family.

In the report, the men fled after the victim began yelling after being startled, and her husband called the police.

Police later found and detained Johnson and the two other men in the area of 6th Avenue North and Chester Street. A polymer handgun, identified as a Polymer 80 semi-automatic, was found in a bush outside the Bayview Resort parking garage.

Both the police report and warrant note that two other witnesses saw Johnson point the gun at the family.

Online records show that the Conway man, Johnson, was booked at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Nov. 10 and later released on a $12,000 bond later that day.
