MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Officers responded to a shooting incident that occurred on Legion Street early Sunday morning involving three people.

Upon arriving to the scene, officers spoke with the victim who said he was outside his family’s property on the corner of 1907 Legion Street looking around because he had problems with the offender earlier in the day. 

The victim told police a vehicle was parked at 1903 Legion Street, he described the vehicle as a dark red ford (possibly focus). The victim said the offender was standing next to the front passenger side door when the offender fired two shots at the victim, the victim said he was certain it was the offender even though it was dark and there was about 100 feet distance. The victim said after shots were fired, he went back inside his family’s home to check on the family then went back outside.

According to police, the victim said he approached the vehicle and also said he saw the suspect. The victim asked the suspect if he just heard gunshots, the victim said the suspect laughed and asked him, “what gun shots?”  The victim also asked how many people where in the vehicle and there was no answer.

The victim said that the suspect walked towards the vehicle shut the door and went behind the house for a few minutes. The victim also said, as soon as the suspect went back towards the house he went behind a tree on the other side of the street. The victim stayed by the tree until the suspect got back into the vehicle and pulled away. 

The victim said the suspect was the driver of the vehicle, the vehicle pulled three quarters of the way out and stopped, and the offender who was in the passenger seat pointed a black pistol out the half opened window at the victim, resting the gun on the window, police say.

Police also say, the victim said he yelled “stop.” He then pulled out his own gun and fired three shots at the vehicle tires and halfway up the door.
