Myrtle Beach police have a man in custody after a shooting at the Bali Bay Hotel early Monday morning.

Herman Brian White, 37, of Andrews, is charged with three counts of attempted murder, unlawful neglect of a child, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Additional charges are possible, according to police.

White was arrested and police found three grams of crack and seven grams of cocaine. Police say they responded to the hotel for a shooting and found one victim shot in the leg and the head. The victim had her two-year-old son with her and they were running away from White when he started firing at them. He then shot at the door of the room they were hiding in, according to arrest warrants.

The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the shooting and is expected to recover.

The hotel is located at 701 South Ocean Blvd.
