HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County Police responded to Ruby Lane in reference to a woman who was shot Monday night in the Conway section of Horry County. 

Lt. Denis with the Horry County Police Department confirmed the shooting happened on Ruby Lane in Conway. According to Corporal Fike with Horry County Police, the call came in around 7:10 p.m. One female victim has non-life threatening injuries. 

According to Corporal Fike the shooting appeared to be a drive by and no one is in custody at this time. Lt. Denis said the couple in the home reported they thought they heard fire crackers until the woman fell to the floor when she was struck in the leg by a bullet. She is expected to recover from her injury.

"It was a bad situation and bad experience, I can tell you,” said George Lewis, father and next door neighbor of one of the victims.

Lewis says he had no idea what to think of the gunshot sounds. Same goes for the victims. A police report states the two victims thought the gunshots were fireworks, until on was hit by a bullet.

"They weren't trying to scare anybody, that's for sure,” said Lewis. “They meant business."

Police are still investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call the Tip Line at 843-915-8477.
