HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The home belonging to the parents of missing woman Heather Elvis was shot at Wednesday night, according to an Horry County Police report.

Police responded to a home in the Socastee area at about 10 p.m. on Wednesday, and met with the victim, who is not named in the police report. He told police he was taking the trash out when he heard a popping sound and felt the trash can being struck.

The victim then ran behind his vehicles and into his residence, the report states. He told police he saw a vehicle on the road where it intersects with the road that the home is on, but was unable to describe it because it was dark and the vehicle was far away.

The report notes that there were about four holes in the victim’s trash can, including both entry and exit holes.

According to the report, this incident is being investigated as an attempted murder.

The address where the incident occurred is owned by Terry and Debora Elvis, parents of Heather Elvis, who has been missing since December 2013, according to county property records.

Earlier this week, the re-trial of Sidney Moorer, the man accused of kidnapping Heather Elvis, was moved to Georgetown County after the judge in the case granted the defense’s request for a change of venue. Moorer’s wife Tammy Moorer is also charged with kidnapping. Murder charges for both Moorers were dropped earlier this year.

    Several people who live on the side streets of Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach recently received a letter saying they need to get rid of obstructions in front of their homes. The city says that’s because the space could be used for public parking. Around 30 people came out to the city council meeting on Monday to speak out about the issue.
