MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) -  Eighteen year-old James Anthony Dwyer has been charged with attempted murder for the shooting Sunday morning at Holiday Sands North in Myrtle Beach. 

Dwyer appeared in Myrtle Beach Municipal Court early Monday afternoon for a bond hearing. A judge set his bond at $150,000 for the attempted murder charge. During the hearing Dwyer also plead guilty to a drug possession charge for possession of marijuana. He could receive 15 days in jail or more than $400 in fines for that charge. 

Police are still searching for 21-year-old Shaylan Charvoris Isaac in connection with the shooting. He is wanted for attempted murder and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony. He is described as a black male, 6-feet-4-inches tall, 173 pounds in weight, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a brown, black and white shirt, brown pants and block Jordan sneakers.

Police say the shooting happened at 400 North Ocean Boulevard. One man was taken to the hospital. An investigation revealed that Isaac shot the victim and then fled the scene, according to police.

"At first it sounded like firecrackers, a witness said. "We literally just passed the hotel and we heard the shots and when we heard the shots I literally took off and started running."

Myrtle Beach Police said when officers got to the scene at around 2:00 a.m. on Ocean Blvd., law enforcement found one victim with a gunshot wound.

"We actually had to take the back way to our hotel because they wouldn't let us through the front way," a witness said.

People around the hotel applauded police for getting to the scene as quickly as they did, and hoped the victim made it to the hospital in time.

"They took forever to take the person to the hospital, and I'm like it's about four shots that went off so somebody has to be dead
," a witness said.

Investigators did not say how badly the man is hurt.

"At this time were not releasing the condition of the victim because we do not know, but as soon as we have additional information we will release that as soon as possible," Myrtle Beach Police spokesmen Lt. Joey Crosby said.
