Conway home invasion, shooting frightens neighbors

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) An Horry county man was rushed to the hospital overnight after being shot in the chest during what appears to be a violent home invasion.

Horry County Police say they are looking for two disguised men accused of shooting and robbing the man in his home Monday morning.

Horry County Police Lieutenant Randall Ghent said the home invasion happened in the Conway area on the 100 block of Sheldon Court in Conway near the J Reuben Long Detention Center just before 3:30 a.m. Monday morning.

When police arrived, they found one male victim with a gunshot wound, Ghent said. Sgt. Robert Kegler reports the victim is in stable condition as of 7:30 a.m. Monday.

Police say the victims were unable to provide a detailed description of the armed robbery suspects; only that they were both young, black males wearing bandannas.

Sheldon Court resident Maribel Perez said she and her mother received a knock on their back door shortly after the incident and called police.

Perez said most of the residents in the neighborhood only speak Spanish, so she acted as a translator between victims and police.

"I just saw there was a whole bunch of blood around his left shoulder," Perez said.

Perez explained the wound appeared severe, but the bullet only grazed the victim's chest and stuck into his arm.

After surgery, Perez said the man seemed to be doing well.

"He's in good shape, saying jokes and everything; he's in good condition," Perez said. 

WMBF News spoke to several neighbors on Monday, who say they have seen at least three robberies or attempted robberies in their neighborhood over the last month, and now some worry their homes have become a target.

"We're planning to move out of here," Perez said. "With young siblings and everything who like to play outside, it's dangerous for them."

Horry County Police also say they don't have a good description of the make and model of the car the men were using, making identifying the gunman even more difficult.

Anyone with information about this case should call police.
