      Myrtle Beach Police say shots were fired on Frontage Road, near 62nd Avenue and Highway 17 Bypass Tuesday afternoon.

      Police are looking for Marcus Olanziwan Brown, 22, in connection to the shooting.

      Police say Brown is wanted for four counts of attempted murder.

      He is listed as 6'4" and 272 pounds.

      About 30 people on a multi-jurisdictional SWAT Team surrounded Brown's townhouse complex because they believed he was in one of the buildings, according to Myrtle Beach police.

      They found out Brown wasn't home.

      Brown shot his gun from inside the home at people outside, police say.

      Officers say no one was hurt in the shooting.

      Police hope to have Brown in custody by Tuesday evening. Police have spoken with Brown on the phone and are negotiating with him.

      Highway 17 Bypass was shut down in that area for a short time while SWAT conducted operations, but it is now open.

      We'll let you know when they make an arrest.
