MBPD: Driver following "suspicious vehicle" shot at by occupants

Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach police are looking for three suspects after a driver and his passenger were shot at Sunday night while following what they called a suspicious vehicle.

According to the police report, the two were following a white Chevy Tahoe on 17 Bypass, and they were by 33rd Avenue North when shots were fired from the Tahoe. Police said it happened around 9:15 p.m., but said no one was hit. They did confirm that multiple shots were fired and the victim's vehicle was struck by bullets at least once.

"So what we're going to ask the public to do is if you see something that's out of place, that doesn't seem right, whether it be someone swerving in and out of their lane of travel that's possibly intoxicated or someone that's hanging around your home that doesn't belong there," according to Lt. Joey Crosby with the Myrtle Beach Police Department. "Or a car that maybe drives around your neighborhood multiple times, please contact the police department."

Police said they could not release all of the details, but the victims saw the suspects in the Tahoe in front of their house, and got in their car to follow the it. Officers say it's best to let police handle suspicious people or vehicles to avoid putting anyone at risk.

"Obtain as much information as possible such as the make and model of the vehicle, tag number if possible. How many occupants in the vehicle if possible. The more information that you can give the dispatcher, the better the investigation can be conducted. Do not take action. Let the trained officer take action if needed. So be a good witness, provide us with as much information as possible."
