One shot in the butt at night club over pool table ‘beef,’ cops say

A 26-year-old man was hospitalized after being shot in the buttocks an unknown amount of times Saturday at a sports bar on Waccamaw Boulevard.

Horry County police responded to Koyote Saloon Sports Bar and Grill about 2:30 a.m. to shots fired, according to an Horry County Police Department report.

Surveillance footage shows a male entering a vehicle trunk, retrieving a firearm and firing it several times before leaving the area, the report said.

The number of spent casings was redacted from the police report.

The owner of the vehicle said it was his bodyguard who fired the shots, according to the report, and he did not know the bodyguard’s full name.

A witness told police there was “beef between two people” at the pool tables, the report said.

The last shooting at the sports bar was three months ago.
