Myrtle Beach Police responded to the scene of a shooting Sunday evening at the Waffle House on 711 Frontage Road.

Police say a woman was shot in the stomach, but her current condition is not known at this time.

Officers say the investigation is still on-going and subject to change, but initial facts point to the victim being shot by a passenger that was in the back seat of the vehicle, the woman was in the front passenger seat.

A witness on scene said there was a loud pop heard in the area and he saw people in a truck playing with a gun.

"When I first pulled up, everything was roped off entirely and stuff... it was like the entrance and everything else was pretty much just in the vicinity of the woman that was shot.... At first I was like.. the thing is that kids were just joking around playing with firecrackers or something like that, but the thing is then I saw her.. saw everything else and was like woah," said witness Justin Barney.

Police say they are not currently looking for any additional subjects and that there is no threat to the public.
