HCPD: Man awoken to gunshots, finds bullet holes in home

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A Conway man was asleep when the sound of gunshots woke him up in his home around 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning, according to the Horry County Police Department.

The police report says officers arrived at the home on Rose Moss Road, where the victim told them he got up after he heard the gunshots. He said he went to his front door and noticed a hole in the base of the door and found other holes in his walls. He said he did not see or hear anyone because he was sleeping, just the gun shots and he thought he heard glass break.

The victim got his children out of the house to a neighbors house where he called police.

Officers searched and found seven holes consistent with a small caliber weapon. On the inside of the house, officers followed the trajectory and located where they believe bullets are lodged in the back exterior wall, couch, door and bed posts. They also located six shell casings consistent with a 9 millimeter along the edge of the road by the property.

The HCPD is asking anyone with information to call the tip line at 843-915-TIPS.
