MYRTLE BEACH — Horry County police are searching for a 24-year-old man in connection with two people being hurt during a bar fight early Sunday in the Longs community, according to a police report.
Durance Antwan McCray, 24, of Longs is wanted on two counts of assault and battery in connection with the incident, Lt. Robert Kegler said about 1 p.m. Monday. Warrants were issued for McCray’s arrest and anyone with information regarding his whereabouts can call Horry County police at 915-TIPS.
Officers were called at 4:30 a.m. Sunday to the G Spot at 8160 S.C. 90 for gunshots being fired in the area, police said.
When officers arrived they met with security guards, who said they had broken up a fight and detained a man, according to the report. Another man in a vehicle fired several gunshots, which distracted security and the man they had detained was able to escape.
Officers searched the area, but were not able to find the car or evidence of a shooting, according to the report. Officers found blood on a doorway at the bar, which guards told them was from a fight earlier in the evening.
As officers prepared to leave the bar, they were called about a stabbing victim being treated at Seacoast Medical Center, according to the report. When officers arrived they learned that a 43-year-old man was being treated for a cut to his right butt cheek.
The man said he was at the club when a man hit him and they fought, according to the report. Another man jumped into the fight and cut the victim, who was then escorted out of the bar. The victim said he told security the second suspect had a knife.
A 38-year-old woman, who also was at the medical center, told police there was a fight in the bar and she was hit three to five times from behind, according to the report. The woman said she saw the suspect, who stabbed the man, standing behind her with a chair.
An officer wrote in the report that because of the proximity of the calls at the bar, they believed the calls were related. Detectives are investigating the incidents and no charges had been filed as of 10 a.m. Monday.
