Horry County police continue to investigate a weekend fatal shooting and are searching for suspects, Sgt. Robert Kegler said.
Jose Gutierez, 20, of Myrtle Beach, was pronounced dead a short time after he arrived at the Conway Medical Center emergency room Friday night, according to authorities. He died from at least one gunshot wound.
An incident report released Monday showed that police were called Ronald McNair Boulevard, which is near the Carolina Bays Parkway overpass, for a report of gunshots being fired in the area. The caller told dispatchers that a man had been shot and several women put him in a vehicle and drove away.
Officers found a crime scene in that area that included blood, a cell phone and shoe in the street, according to the report. A witness told police that she was inside her house and heard what sounded like gunshots. The witness told police she saw a man leave the scene in one vehicle and the woman and Gutierez leave in another vehicle.
While officers were at that scene, Gutierez arrived at the hospital for treatment, police said.
Officers learned the women took Guiterez to the hospital, and they were questioned about the shooting there. The man, who the witness described as leaving the scene, also arrived at the hospital and was questioned by police.
Several neighbors told police they heard three gunshots at the time of the incident, but that they did not see what happened, according to the report.
Police ask that anyone with information about the shooting or Gutierez can call 915-TIPS.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
