MYRTLE BEACH, SC (News Release) - The Myrtle Beach community sends its deepest condolences to the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church congregation, Mayor Joe Riley, Charleston citizens and all South Carolina residents as we grieve the lives lost in Wednesday's tragic shooting. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

We are immensely saddened by such a heartbreaking incident. The City of Myrtle Beach pledges whatever assistance is needed to aid our neighbors in Charleston during this time of bereavement and mourning.

Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes released the following statement:

“On behalf of the Myrtle Beach community, our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victims of this senseless act of violence. We are appalled that this could happen, especially in a place of worship. Let Reverend Clementa Pinckney and those who were lost be forever memorialized. Their legacy will not be defined by the way they perished. Instead, they will be remembered for the way they lived, bettering their community through personal involvement and acts of kindness. We share your heartbreak and sorrow at their loss.”
