No arrests have been made, but the investigation into the shooting that took place on May 25 at the Wave Rider Resort and injured two people has been closed.
The victims and witnesses are not cooperating so no charges will be filed, according to a news release from the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
When officers responded to the shooting, two victims, both visiting the area from Shelby, North Carolina, were found and taken to the hospital.
They provided very little information about what happened, the release said.
Witnesses said they saw a man and woman arguing on the balcony of the room before shots were fired.
Other witnesses who said they were in or around the room would not provide more details about what happened and denied any weapons or other people being in the room, according to the release.
Police found another person who was staying in the room, as well as photographs of the two who were shot and a handgun in the room.
Upon consulting with the Horry County Solicitors Office, Myrtle Beach police decided against filing any charges at this time but retains the right to re-open the case should new evidence come to light, according to the release.
This was one of several shootings, including one that killed three people, that took place over Memorial Day weekend in Myrtle Beach.
