MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police are looking for several suspects in an attempted robbery and shooting incident early Sunday morning that left one man injured.
Myrtle Beach Police released surveillance camera images showing three or four suspects wanted for their involvement in the assault and attempted robbery that happened in the early morning hours of April 13 near the intersection of 7th Avenue North and Flagg Street.
The suspects did fire a handgun during the attack; police urge the use of caution, and say not to attempt to apprehend the suspects.
According to the Myrtle Beach Police report, the victim told police that while walking from the 8th Ave. TikiBar to his home on Flagg Street, he noticed he was being followed by the suspects. After arriving at his room, the suspect knocked on his door, and he walked downstairs with them.
When they got downstairs, the suspects told the victim to walk towards Flagg Street, and when he arrived there, they told him to give them "the bread," according to the report. The victim said he did not have anything, and they pulled out a handgun. The victim heard a shot go off, and next thing he remembers, people were talking to him.
The officer found the victim lying on the ground with a severe laceration to his face. He was taken to a nearby hospital.
The victim described two of the suspects: one had a bright orange shirt, and the suspect with the weapon was about 6-foot-1-inch tall, between 23 and 30 years old, and wearing a red, black and white striped shirt with long dark shorts and a gold chain.
