MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A victim was shot after a suspect demanded money in the area of Mr. Joe White Blvd. early Wednesday morning, according to information from Lt. Joey Crosby with the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

The victim was reportedly sitting in his vehicle when a suspect got into the car, presented a gun, and demanded money. A second suspect stood outside of the vehicle.
