Arrest warrants reveal shooting suspect waited for victim outside Levelz night club

Police investigate deadly shooting at Myrtle Beach night club

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Arrest warrants issued for Kevin Tyrone Bryant, charged with murder in the Myrtle Beach night club shooting, indicate he waited for the victim outside.

Saequan Vereen, 23, of Myrtle Beach, died due to a gunshot wound that caused trauma to vital organs, according to Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler.

Warrants for the crimes were issued Wednesday, Feb. 18. According to an affidavit, "through investigation it revealed that defendant Bryant did lie and (sic) wait for the victim to exit Levelz nightclub. Upon reaching Bryant, he did exit out between two vehicles where he was crouched, and he did begin to shoot the victim multiple times at which point the victim succumbed to injuries from the shooting."

Sunday, Feb. 15, the Myrtle Beach Police Department responded to Club Levelz located on 515 9th Avenue North around 2:45 a.m., in reference to a shooting. When officers arrived on the scene, they located a victim lying on the sidewalk. EMS was called to the scene and shortly after it was determined the Vereen had died.

According to police, Bryant had been shot by security guards hired by management of the club. As a result of his injury, he was transported to the hospital. 

Fifteenth Circuit Solicitor Jimmy Richardson said his office was already looking into the club before the deadly shooting. The Myrtle Beach Police Department has been building up a case against the club being a public nuisance for quite some time. Dozens of police reports show officers had to respond to the club location for drug use, assaults, and liquor violations.

"We served the owner on Sunday. There is a 10-day abatement period that goes with it where he is given an opportunity to clean up the club," explained Solicitor Richardson.

A judge will look through the evidence to determine if Club Levelz is a public nuisance. If it is, it could be shut down for up to a year.
