MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A woman died after a shooting in the Socastee area, according to authorities.

A report from the Horry County Police Department states officers responded to the area of Leste Road on Monday after reports of a person possibly dead inside a home.

The victim was found dead by medical personnel as police arrived.

Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard later identified the victim as 58-year-old Teresa Lischer.

An autopsy has been scheduled at the Medical University of South Carolina.

The incident is being investigated as a homicide, according to Willard.

Lischer’s relatives tell WMBF she was the mother of two boys in their 20s and worked as a registered nurse.

Neighbors say this is a quiet community and they never expected something like this to happen.

“Shock really, I mean that just doesn’t happen in this neighborhood at least. Everybody is super friendly, it’s like a big cohesive unit so, yeah I’m shocked,” said Jason Coyne.

Horry County Police say the investigation is ongoing and did not confirm if any arrests have been made.
