Attorney: Myrtle Beach man shot by police facing additional charges

The Myrtle Beach man who was shot by police during a drug raid at his home in April now faces three charges of pointing and presenting a firearm, his attorney said Friday.

Julian Betton, 30, had already been charged with three counts of possession with intent to distribute marijuana in connection with the case. Drug agents say they used a confidential informant to purchase marijuana from Betton twice before serving search and arrest warrants at his Withers Swash apartment on April 16.
