Man accused of firing several gun shots outside Murrells Inlet bar

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities say they have arrested a 26-year-old man accused of a shooting outside a Murrells Inlet bar.

The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office arrested Richard Allen Skimmyhorn on Wednesday and charged him with two counts of pointing and presenting a firearm.

Skimmyhorn's arrest stems from an incident that happened last month. At 4:45 a.m. on July 27, deputies responded to the Beaver Bar on 3574 Highway 17.

After deputies arrived on scene, they were told several gun shots had been fired in the parking lot of the business.

The victim said he was speaking with Skimmyhorn and another person earlier at the bar.

According to investigators, later when the victim left the bar, he saw Skimmyhorn outside holding a gun. Authorities say Skimmyhorn then fired several rounds.
