At least five people were shot inside a Myrtle Beach, S.C. nightclub Saturday morning, and the shooter is still on the run, according to city police.

The shooting occurred at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday at the Pure Ultra Nightclub in downtown Myrtle Beach. The conditions of the victims are unclear at this time, but all are receiving treatment for their injuries, according to our partner at WPDE.

Here's how the club looked after police arrived.

The suspect was described as a 5'10" black man with a goatee and a short hair, wearing a baseball cap and long-sleeved shirt.

The club is in an area known as the "Super Block," which is at the heart of a debate over the ties between crime and nightclubs.  Last December, the city council passed an ordinance banning any new bars or clubs in the area until a study had been completed.
