HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An investigation is underway after a gun was reportedly fired into a Myrtle Beach-area home on Thanksgiving.

Upon arrival, the 40-year-old victim showed officers a bullet hole on the outside of his home. The victim told police he was sleeping in his bedroom when he heard several gunshots in the area and then a noise in his kitchen that sounded like something breaking, the report states.

The victim said he has not had any problems with anyone and that people fire guns in the area “all the time and all hours,” the report states.
