Three people have been killed and a fourth person was wounded in a shooting at an oceanfront motel in Myrtle Beach, one of South Carolina's most popular tourist destinations.

 
Police say the shootings took place around 11 p.m. Saturday in front of crowds of tourists at the Bermuda Sands Motel along the beach's new boardwalk.
 

Police have not said whether they have any suspects or what led to the shooting.

 
The Sun News quoted a witness as saying that several people were fighting on the sidewalk in front of the motel minutes before the shooting.

 
The shooting happened during the annual Atlantic Beach BikeFest held about 15 miles away during the Memorial Day weekend. Police say they typically deal with motorcycle wrecks and lesser offenses during the bike rally, but violence is unusual.
