MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police officers found spent shell casings in the parking lot of a hookah bar Friday morning.

According to an incident report, the call about possible shots fired at 637 Broadway Street came in around 3:20 a.m. A total of three .380-caliber casings were found. No injuries were reported.

"In the early morning hours, officers responded to the area of Broadway street in reference to a report of shots fired," MBPD spokesman Lt. Joey Crosby said. "Upon arriving on scene, officers did find evidence that a weapon was discharged. However, we were not able to locate a victim or anyone that was struck by this weapon."

He continued: "Officers attempted to conduct an investigation into this, however, the witnesses that were on scene were very uncooperative and provided officers with little information. We’re going to continue our investigation and continue to evaluate evidence that we have in hopes of identifying a suspect and holding them accountable for their actions.”
