Police arrested and charged three people following a shooting Saturday morning in Myrtle Beach, authorities said.

Officers responded to a shooting in the area of 10th Avenue South and South Oak Street around 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Myrtle Beach Police Cpl. Tom Vest said.

One person was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

On Saturday afternoon, police served warrants at homes in the 700 block of 13th Avenue South and the 1500 block of Highway 15 in connection to the investigation.

Three people were taken into custody.

Keith Burris, 22, is charged with attempted murder, according to online police records. His total bond was set at $150,000.

Brandon Knott, 20, is charged with attempted murder, petit larceny, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, unlawfully carrying a pistol, pointing and presenting a firearm at a person and and one drug-related count. His total bond was set at $265,000.

Belyn Rodriguez, 20, is charged with obstructing justice and one drug-related count. Her total bond was set at $15,000.

Vest said the attempted murder and weapon charges were filed in connection to the initial shooting incident.

The other charges were levied in connection to the investigation.

Arrest warrants say that before the shooting, an argument occurred due to a road rage incident.

Burris was the driver of the "suspect vehicle" and he and Knott confronted the victim, a warrant states. 

Knott pulled out a gun and shot the victim once in the leg, warrants say.

Rodriguez initially told police she didn't know anything about the shooting, but later she admitted to knowing about the incident when police came to her home, according to warrants.

She said the two people responsible for the shooting left her home 10 minutes before officers arrived.
