MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 31-year-old man was shot in the leg while he was at a candlelight vigil for his friend Sunday night, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.

He pulled over and asked if the victim needed help. The victim said he had been shot in the leg. The victim then jumped into the car and the man drove him to a nearby hospital.
