HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Two people were arrested after a shooting incident at Grand Strand Medical Center May 30. 

According to arrest warrants from the Myrtle Beach Police Department, Yul Grayson Harley, II, 24, and Brandilyn Brianni Wright, 20, were arrested in connection to the incident.

Police say an investigation revealed Harley was involved in an altercation in front of the hospital that led to a victim being shot. The victim suffered from non-life threatening injuries. 

After shooting the victim, Harley fled the scene in a vehicle operated by Wright, according to police. 

Police say Harley was charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and Wright was charged with accessory after the fact because Wright had knowledge that Harley committed the crime, and attempted to get Harley away from the scene.    

Myrtle Beach Police Officers responded to a shooting that left one person injured, and caused Grand Strand Medical Center to be temporarily locked down Saturday.

"We were on lock-down briefly this afternoon following a domestic dispute. We are no longer on lock-down, but we would ask that the community use our ER and Heart Tower entrances when visiting the hospital this afternoon," said Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Julie Kopnicky. 

According to Kopnicky, there was a family dispute in the parking lot that the police became engaged in. Hospital officials say they are cooperating with the police, and are continuing to provide support and care to patients and families. "Our top priority at Grand Strand Medical Center is the highest level of care for our community in a safe and caring environment," Kopnicky said. 

According to police, the incident occurred in the hospital's parking lot. Police believe the incident is connected to another shooting incident that happened earlier Saturday involving a 3-year-old child who unintentionally shot themselves. Horry County Police Department is investigating that case.

Two people have been taken into custody due to the incident at the hospital, according to police. Officials say patients and visitors at the hospital are not in danger.
