Calls made to 911 the night of a shooting that left three people from the Lowcountry dead shed light on the chaos in the moments immediately following the gunfire.

"I didn't see nothing else. I heard gunshots and I looked down and someone was laying down, like they had got shot. They wasn't moving," one caller said.

"I don't know how many gunmen you have out there. All I know is that there are people running loose with guns at the Bermuda Sands," another caller said.

Myrtle Beach Police Capt. David Knipes says officers responded to a report of a large fight in front of the motel at about 11 p.m. Before officers arrived, three shots were fired, striking and injuring Keith Williams, Knipes said.

Police believe people involved in the fight fled to the second floor of the motel, where another offender fired multiple shots at people who may have been involved in the fight and then fled out the rear door of the motel.

Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler identified the victims as Devonte Dantzler, 21, of Summerville, SC; Jamie Williams, 28, of Ladson, SC; and Sandy Gaddis Barnwell, 22, of Summerville, SC. All three deaths were ruled as homicides.

Myrtle Beach Police are still looking for one man accused of shooting the three victims.

There were a total of eight shootings over a 48-hour span in Myrtle Beach this weekend.
