Warning: this video is graphic.
When volunteer firefighter Bubba Hinson decided to visit the popular tourist destination Myrtle Beach, S.C., we’re guessing the last thing he expected was to be live cameraman of a mass shooting.
You can hear Hinson yelling “Multiple people down!” instantly after a gunman opened fire and sent a crowd of people scattering early Sunday.
According to Myrtle Beach Online, three shootings occurred over the weekend in Myrtle Beach, leaving eight people wounded.
“If you’re watching this, stay away from Fourth Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard,” Hinson says while filming. “There’s multiple people been shot!”
“I thought they were dancing. That’s why I started filming it. Then, they started fighting. Then, they started shooting,” he said later.
The video is hard to watch.
Fox 8 reported that the shooter pulled out his weapon, fired and then carjacked a vehicle. The gunman was eventually shot by an armed security officer.
His name has not yet been released.
Although seven people were taken to the hospital, one of whom was the gunman, the injuries are considered non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the gunman will be named once he is medically cleared to leave the hospital and warrants are served.
Hinson’s original 45-minute-long Facebook Live video is still up and available for viewing.
It occurs around the 1:30 mark.
