Myrtle Beach bikefest worker shot at while manning barricades

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Myrtle Beach Police say an event staff member was shot at after refusing to let a vehicle pass through an intersection where barricades had been placed Saturday night.

According to a police report, the event staff member was working the barricades at 17 Avenue South and Yaupon Drive around 11:50 p.m. Saturday when a silver Chevy Impala pulled up and the passenger asked the worker if they could get through the intersection. The worker said no and the driver began to pull off, the report states.

The victim told police that as the car pulled away, the passenger, who was sitting on the door hanging outside the vehicle, fired one or two shots from a handgun. The car then sped away from the area, according to the report.

The worker told officers that the car was a newer model, silver Chevy Impala with a multi-colored license plate, although he could not get the tag number. The victim described the shooter as a black male, having shoulder length dreads, wearing a black leather biker vest with a white t-shirt underneath and jeans.

Officers were able to recover a .45 shell casing from the scene and issued a BOLO for the vehicle. No arrests have been made.
