A 28-year-old man died after being gunned down at a Conway-area home Monday night.
Officers responded about 10:40 p.m. to a report of shots fired on the 600 block of Hill Street in Conway, Lt. Selena Small with Conway police said.
Arriving officers discovered a shooting happened in the roadway and inside a Hill Street residence, according to a police report.
Aswan Kahien Rogers of Conway was taken to Conway Medical Center with a gunshot wound and was later taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center where he died from his injuries, police said.
The investigation is still ongoing, according to authorities, and officers said anyone with information can call the Conway Police Department at 843-248-1790.
Hill Street was quiet the day after Roger’s death. Shards of broken glass littered the porch of a home where the shooting happened, and the home had also been pierced with bullet holes. Gunshots had traveled through the walls of a neighboring home, too. Neighbors in the area declined to comment on the shooting, and a family member also declined to comment.
The incident marks at least the fourth shooting in Horry County since Saturday, according to police reports from various agencies.
