HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Police in Horry County responded to shots fired Thursday at a Longs area home, marking the second time they had done so this week.

While clearing a separate call, Horry County officers heard gunshots around 9:25 p.m. in the area of Livington and Delia lanes.

After searching, the officers found several shell casings at a home on Livington Lane. A resident then came out and asked the officers if the home had been shot.

Investigators checked the side of the house, which faces the road, and found eight bullet holes, according to an incident report.

A person was inside at the time of the shooting, but they were not shot, the report states.

Police checked the call history for the address and discovered a similar incident happened on Monday.

During Monday’s incident, officers responded and were told a drive-by shooting had just occurred around 7 p.m. Authorities searched and found shell casings and six bullet holes at the home, according to Monday’s incident report.

Police spoke with a witness who claimed seeing a passenger in a Chevy sedan roll down the window and shoot a gun from the car.

The victim told police they were in the home at the time. They heard 10 gunshots and heard the rounds penetrate the walls, the report reads.

Investigators said the victim would not allow them to come inside the home for “a more depth investigation.”

No arrests have been made in either incident, the reports state.
