MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 31-year-old has been arrested after witnesses told Myrtle Beach Police they heard several gunshots fired near a Myrtle Beach home, and saw a truck that possibly belonged to the ex-husband of the one of the residents.

At about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, police responded to a home in the 9500 block of Lake Drive. A resident told police that she heard a gunshot, and went to the window to see a white truck that appeared to be the one owned by her husband, according to the police report. She said that she heard two more gunshots as the truck came to the corner of the street.

The woman's friend and roommate said they also heard the gunshots – three in total, according to the report. They were not sure how many people were in the truck, or who was shooting the gun.

Officers searched the area, but could not find the shell casings or any damage to the home, the report states.

Ryan Scott, 31, was arrested and was being held at the Myrtle Beach Jail, according to Lt. Joey Crosby with MBPD. 

Warrants indicate that Scott's truck was stopped by police a short time after the incident, and they found a .38 caliber handgun in the vehicle. Scott was charged with discharging a firearm within the city and unlawfully carrying of a pistol.
