ATF offers reward in Horry County home invasion, shooting that left 4 hospitalized

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), in cooperation with the Horry County Police Department, has announced a reward of up to $5,000.00, for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the home invasion and subsequent shooting off Colletta Court in the Conway area of Horry County, S.C.

Horry County Police are investigating after a shooting at a house party near Conway sent four people to the hospital with gunshot wounds late Tuesday night November 24.

Gibbons said Horry County Fire Rescue first responders carried three patients with gunshot wounds to Grand Strand Medical Center. The fourth person was airlifted to the hospital. 

The shooting happened at a home off Colletta Court on Highway 548 near Conway as a party broke up, said Lt. Raul Denis with Horry County Police.

Melissa Laird says she was petrified after hearing the gunshots fired right outside her window and asked her husband to see what was wrong. "I told him to go check on our kids to see if they were ok. He said they were fine. They were all still sleeping."

Horry County Police said four people were shot at a party just behind The Laird's house. Officers are still investigating exactly what happened, but we do know all four victims were taken to a nearby hospital, with one victim being airlifted.

Horry County Detectives brought in several neighbors and party goers for questioning. Laird said she hopes something will be done to keep the children in the neighborhood safe.

"I've got seven of my own, and I don’t want nothing to happen to any one of them. And I have an itty-bitty little baby, what if it was to hit my youngest one. I don’t know what I would do. I don’t want nothing to happen to any of these kids. I love all of these kids even if I hardly know them I love them all like they're my own." said Laird. "I thought that being this was a small community, I thought it would be a really good neighborhood for my kids, but apparently I was wrong."  

Police still have yet to release the names of the victims, or any possible suspects.

This violent crime is being investigated by ATF and the Horry County Police Department. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (800-283-4867), or the HCPD Tip Line at 843-915-8477.
