HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A resident of Waterford Plantation in Carolina Forest was shot at after noticing a suspicious person approaching cars in the area.

According to an Horry County police report, officers responded to Sparkle Court at 3 a.m. for a shooting call.

The victim told police he woke up, looked outside and a person ride a bicycle from his driveway to his neighbor’s driveway. He saw the suspect go into two of his neighbor’s cars so he yelled, and the suspect got back on his bike.

As the victim got into his car to follow, he heard what sounded like a gunshot, so he stopped and called police.

There was a bullet hole on the driver’s side door of his car. The suspect was captured on surveillance video, the report states, and officers found the suspect’s bike.

WMBF News caught up with the victim Brian Koldys. He says he still can't believe this happened.

“It’s scary," Koldys said. "Honestly.”

He says after the incident, he wasn't able to go back to sleep.

“Every little sound, I was like, ‘What’s happening? Is someone breaking into my house?’ I was on edge," Koldys said. "I can’t tell you I’ve ever even heard a gun in person. Maybe in the distance or something. It sounds way different than it does on TV, and I definitely never thought in my life if I would get shot at it would’ve been in this neighborhood.”

Horry County Police Department says they'll post updates to this case on their social media pages.

Call 915-TIPS with information.
