Seven people were reportedly injured in an overnight shootout in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that was caught on Facebook live.

The Daily Mail, citing Myrtle Beach Police, the shooting occurred around 12:30am on Sunday near Ocean Boulevard.

A fight broke out among a crowd of people that led to the suspect pulling a gun out and firing. Seven people were hit and taken to the hospital. None of the victims had life-threatening injuries.

 

According to police, officers were called to 5th Ave N and Ocean Boulevard around 12:25 am as a large crowd had gathered and was blocking traffic.

A fight broke out between three people amongst the crowd before officers arrived. A man in a white t-shirt and jeans proceeded to pull a gun out of his pocket and fire at people.

More than a dozen shots can be heard in the video.

An armed security officer witnessed the shooting, prompting him to fire at the suspect, who attempted to flee in a stolen vehicle.

Officers say they found the stolen vehicle as well as the suspect who has now been apprehended.

According to The Daily Mail, the security officer that prevented the shooter from harming many more people suffered a graze wound to the leg but did not require hospitalization and instead received medical attention at the scene.

Although a patrol car was hit by gunfire, no officers were hurt.

Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes said that “Social media today puts this word out quickly.” “It does not look good for the city of Myrtle Beach,” he added.

This was the third shooting in the city within eight hours. Around 4:30 pm on Saturday a gunshot victim was found at Coastal Grand Mall with reports of shots being fired ten minutes later at the Crown Reef Resort on Ocean Boulevard.

    Thug Life: Hold you gun crooked like Sam Jackson, then spray and pray. Result: Fire 50 bullets from 20 feet and not hit ANYTHING. One thing I can’t stand is INCOMPETENT gangsters…

      Gangsters = Capone, Dillinger, Moran, etc.
      These guys = worthless incompetent thugs.

        I should have written “gangstas”, you’re right…

        • SuzieB

          Yeah… just wannabes.

  • Sid Whittaker

    The black guy in the white T shirt started the gunfight..

  • mark white

    More “didn du nuffins” proving civilization just isnt for them.

    But, you guys – #BLM

  • Trey Parker

    Was Kenny Powers there?

  • matrixisreal

    Then people wonder why cops are so trigger happy, that went down fast. Within seconds the officer was involved and injured.

    • Dan Fargo

      Did you read the story above? No officers were injured.

      • matrixisreal

        And? He got shot at, was on the ground, and engaged in a brief gunfight with the perp within moments. So how is my statement invalid?

      • SuzieB

        No OFFICERS… the man by the bush was a security guard and he got grazed on the leg. I don’t know if they counted him as an officer… but they said he was treated at the scene. (Does anyone READ any more?… Or does everyone use video as their only means of information?)

  • Michael McFadden

    And they wonder why they get stereotyped…..

    • SuzieB

      Stereotypes have always been started by FACT. That’s not being biased… it’s FACT. For some, those stereotypes died off LONG ago… some… stick around thanks to attitude and enabling.

  • Pat Patrix

    So tired of these large groups of crackers going around ruining everything.

    owait.

  • RJ

    Think of all those alarmists who warned us about desegregation. See, everything worked out just great after all!

  • Dan Fargo

    The one guy in the white, if he would have stopped shooting when they ran, it would have been stand your ground type of crap. He was being mobbed.

    • SuzieB

      Are you watching the same thing I am? Yeah.. he was one on the ground when the fight broke out. Hard to discern with all of them wearing the same thing… one could be separated because of his extensions. The rest peeled off the last guy who stood up with NO ONE around him… went over towards the tree and started shooting.

      Couldn’t hear… but I’m going to assume that’s when the security guard showed up. The gun coming out might have been in response to the guard and the fact that… by that time… the shooter couldn’t get away (being stopped from running by the men who started the fight). At that point, the shooter took off UP the street… and continued to take shots. People like that need to be PUT DOWN LIKE THE MONGRELS THEY ARE. PERIOD. So many INNOCENT people could have been hurt… the disgusting THUG.

    Hey it’s not their fault! The Russians incited this by hacking into their social media accounts to set it up.

  • I bet you every dollar I own every moron shown in the video is an Obama-loving liberal.

    i see self defense – all 10 against one guy, until Colt came to make odds even 😉

      And I’m seeing Myrtle Beach’s summer ruined. It’s a shame. These beach towns LIVE on this business for the entire year. Bad summer?… (like an early hurricane season) HORRIBLE winter.

  • SuzieB

    It’s nice Bubba could get his conspiracy theory about guns and government out there. That aside, if the bikers were having their usual weekend… this s**t would never have happened.

    Myrtle Beach… another great place to vacation ruined by a-holes and thugs. Just look at who is causing all this and who are screaming the loudest. I hope they caught the shooter… that prig with the white tee and beige pants and black (not racist… FACT.)
