CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – Horry County police are investigating a shooting in the Conway area Monday night.

A tweet from the Horry County Police Department says detectives were on their way to a shooting on Wayside Drive around 8 p.m Monday.

A second tweet confirmed that one victim was taken to the hospital as a result of the shooting.

Officials have not released the extent of the victim’s injuries or what led up to the incident.

According to the department, detectives do not yet have any suspect information.

Tuesday afternoon, police posted a message about the shooting on their Facebook page.

Initially, investigators mentioned the entire incident happened outside of the home but much later in the evening, officers obtained a search warrant because they believed there was evidence in the home. According to the post, while blood and a gun were found in the home, the blood was from the victim trying to “render aid to himself” and the weapon is not involved in the shooting.
