In the early morning hours of Sunday, on the warm streets of Myrtle Beach, a brutal fight broke out that eventually culminated in multiple shots being fired, injuring half a dozen people.

According to reports from Fox News, the incident, which was captured on Facebook Live, shows a group of people holding up traffic where a large fight breaks out.

In the midst of the madness, people were punching and kicking one another — and then a man in a white shirt suddenly pulled out a gun on the crowded street and began firing.


The shooter, whose identity has yet to be disclosed, fired off roughly 16 shots and ended up hitting six people, Fox reports.

The man behind the camera, who was filming from what appears to be a balcony, can be heard saying:

“Multiple people down. We’re at 4th Avenue North. Stay away.”

WBTW News reports that an armed security officer witnessed the shooting and then opened fire on the suspect, injuring him in the process.


The shooter fired back and hit the security officer.

The suspect managed to get up despite his injury and ran off, eventually stealing a vehicle in an attempt to flee the scene.

However, the shooter didn't make it far — both he and the stolen car were found shortly thereafter.

A police car was left with several bullet holes, but thankfully, no one inside was injured.

As for the six who were shot, none of their injuries were said to be life-threatening, Fox reports.

Police are still investigating the cause of the fight.
