MYRTLE BEACH — Police are searching for a man accused of firing into a Denny’s restaurant Sunday morning.
Officers responded to the scene at 800 S. Kings Highway and spoke to a security officer who said he heard about eight shots fired after having an altercation with a customer.
The security officer told police a man was being loud and using foul language and was asked to leave the restaurant. Upon being escorted to the door, the suspect told the security guard he would be back, according to the police report.
The employee said he later heard the gunshots, which sounded like they came from the back parking lot. Police officers found shell casings in the lot and bullet holes inside the restaurant in the cooler and women’s restroom.
The suspect was described as a black male, 25-35 years old, about 6-foot-3 and weighing about 250 pounds. He was wearing a dark T-shirt, jeans and had cropped hair. The security officer told police he saw the suspect get in a dark blue older model Crown Victoria with door panels darker than the rest of the car.
Officers copied a security disc showing the altercation for evidence.
