MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; three people were killed and a fourth person was wounded in a shooting at an oceanfront motel in Myrtle Beach, one of South Carolina's most popular tourist destinations.
The shootings took place around 11 p.m. Saturday in front of crowds of tourists at the Bermuda Sands Motel along the beach's new boardwalk, Myrtle Beach Police Capt. David Knipes said.
"We've got detectives working on it around the clock," Knipes said Sunday. "We don't have any suspects in custody." Knipes would not say whether detectives have determined a motive for the shooting, but said it didn't appear to be a random shooting.
Witnesses and police said the shootings happened when a large fight broke out in front of the motel.
