MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach Police responded to reports of a shooting in Myrtle Beach early Saturday morning near 36th Ave. Witnesses told police they heard several gunshots or fireworks. One man was arrested Sunday in connection to the shooting, according to Myrtle Beach Police.

Officers received the call in the area of 36th Avenue in reference to the shots fired, just before 1 a.m.  When officers were heading to the scene, numerous calls came in. Officers closed 35th Ave. North, 36th Ave. North and 37th Ave. North.

When police arrived to 36th Avenue, they observed approximately 40 shell casings in the roadway parking lot outside of the 609 building.

One witness said he was outside his house between 36th Ave. North and 35th Ave. North, when he heard 10-15 gunshots or fireworks. He thought they were M80 fireworks due to the sound. He then got up and saw three males running. The suspects got into a late 90's Brown or Gold Toyota that was parked in the parking lot. When the suspects got into the vehicle, they drove west on 36th Ave. North, then turned around at the end of the street and drove toward Oak Street, according to police reports. 

The second witness said he heard the same shots fired, went outside and heard more shots, then saw a black male get into the vehicle and drive East on 36th Ave. He then saw the vehicle head south on North Oak Street, reports say.

Officers witnessed one vehicle was struck by three gunshots and had two flat tires from the shots. The second vehicle appeared to have two ricochet marks and the building at 609 was struck several times as well as the building at 605.
