MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WMBF) – A man was shot after finding burglars in his Murrells Inlet home, according to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called Wednesday afternoon to Lomax Court, just off Wachesaw Road, where they found a man who shot in the lower torso area.

The victim was taken to the hospital but his condition has not been released.

Investigators discovered that the man had come home from work to eat lunch when he found burglars inside his home.

“A struggle ensued between the victim and one of the burglars inside the home and the victim was shot in the lower torso,” according to a wanted poster from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
