HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – A police report is shedding light on a shooting this week in the Longs area that left one man hurt.

Authorities responded to a home on Freemont Road Tuesday afternoon and found the victim shot, according to the report.

The victim said he was driving when a “car load” of people started shooting at him, hitting his vehicle several times, the report confirms. The victim then drove back to his house.

According to the report, the victim told authorities he had never seen the people who fired on him previously and has “no clue as to who they were,” according to the report.
