Police seek help solving Bikefest weekend slayings

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (AP) -

Myrtle Beach police are urging anyone with information about the shooting deaths of three people at a motel during the Atlantic Beach Bikefest to contact them or Crime Stoppers.

Detective Will Kitelinger was joined by family members of the victims at a news conference in Summerville on Wednesday in asking for the public's help.

Kitelinger says the case is a tough one because the victims were all from the Summerville area and the perpetrators could be from somewhere else in the U.S.

Police initially said the slayings might be gang-related but the detective says he has no information to suggest that.

After a rash of violence in communities near Atlantic Beach during this year's bike festival, Gov. Nikki Haley called for an end to the annual event.
