CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Police continue to investigate a shooting that happened on Wayside Road in the Conway area on Monday night.

Information tweeted Monday from the Horry County Police Department stated that one person was taken to the hospital following the incident.

When law enforcement first arrived, all witness accounts and physical evidence indicated the incident happened outside of the home, according to a Tuesday afternoon HCPD Facebook post.

“At that time, no probable cause existed for law enforcement to make entry into the residence for any reason,” the post stated.

Two witnesses to the shooting told police the victim was sitting on the porch when the shooter came form around the corner of the house and started shooting, striking the victim, the police report states. The witnesses said the suspect then fled on foot towards a white Lexus that left the scene. The witnesses said they then put the victim in a vehicle and began driving him to the hospital. They stopped when they saw an ambulance en route.

As the investigation continued into the evening, information given to police indicated there was evidence inside the home. A search warrant was obtained and detectives entered the residence, according to the HCPD.

Blood and a firearm were reportedly found inside the home. According to police, the blood appeared to be the result of the victim trying to render aid to himself, while the gun does not appear to be related to the shooting.

Information on a possible suspect has not yet been released.
