HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A bomb squad rendered “potentially explosive” material safe at the Horry County Police Department building Monday after the property seized from a domestic violence and officer-involving shooting suspect was examined.

The suspect in a domestic violence incident on Bellamy Road in North Myrtle Beach, 52-year-old Earnail Michael Godbold, was booked into the Horry County Detention Center Monday. Godbold reportedly fired at North Myrtle Beach Police officers who responded to the call, injuring one officer in the foot.

In an effort to secure the firearm used by Godbold, some of his property was seized and taken the Horry County Police Department, according to a news release from police. After search warrants were obtained, his property was examined, and it was discovered that there were items that were “potentially explosive.”

“This necessitated a temporary restriction of movement at the rear of HCPD property and employees were advised to stay away from that area,” the news release states. “Bomb Squad Technicians rendered the devices safe and everyone returned to work after a couple of hours.

Godbold has been charged with first-degree domestic violence, first-degree assault and battery, three counts of attempted murder, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
