Horry County Police Officials say Michael Scott Stevenson, 27, from High Point, NC and Ronald Terrel Hamlet, 28, both are wanted for attempted murder and armed robbery.

Outside one home in the Spring Creek development, off of Luttie Road, police officers were leaving, as family members were arriving

Family and Friends of Douglas did not speak to News 13, but other residents in the Spring Creek neighborhood say that the incident did not surprise them.

"We've seen lights before here, so it wasn't too surprising," said Christa Dorsey who has lived in the neighborhood for almost a decade.

Dorsey says even though it does not surprise her, that does not mean it is not scary.

"I'm always cautious when I come home, I think even more so now that it happened in my neighborhood I'll be even more cautious," she said.

Many other residents said the same thing.

One father, who had two children, said it is enough for them to consider leaving the area.
