CAROLINA FOREST, SC -

Horry County Police are on the lookout for two men in connection with a robbery and shooting.

It started around 9 p.m. Wednesday night at the McDonald's in International Drive.

Investigators say four men robbed the victim at the restaurant and took off. Police say the victim then chased the suspects, who crashed their car near Carolina Forest Community Church.

Police say the suspects got out of their car, shots were fired, and the victim was hit and wounded. However, the victim was later released from Grand Strand Medical Center. 

Thurston Hardiman, 19, of Longs and Christopher Giddens, 19 of Florence have been charged with armed robbery, attempted murder, robbery while armed with a fire arm, and discharging firearms into a dwelling.

They are both still in jail with no bond set.
