Victims told Horry County police a man they knew fired a gun at their car as they left a Socastee-area bar early Friday morning.
Officers were called about 4:30 a.m. Friday to the Sun Up Bar on Socastee Boulevard in reference to a shooting, police said.
Authorities met with two female victims at a nearby gas station on Socastee Boulevard where they reported the incident.
Police noticed a gunshot entry on the victims’ front-passenger car door, and noted the victims were uninjured, according to the report.
The victims told officers they went to the bar to meet a friend. The suspect approached their car with a handgun, the report states.
He allegedly began banging on the passenger-side and driver-side windows with the butt of the handgun, authorities said.
Both victims stayed inside the car. As the car reversed to leave the parking lot, the suspect allegedly fired a single round into the vehicle, according to the report.
The suspect fled the area in a burgundy vehicle, and one of the victims told police the incident stemmed from a prior argument.
A witness who said they were in the parking lot at the time of the incident corroborated the victims’ story, police said.
Surveillance video also showed the incident happened the way the victims described it, the report states.
Police were seeking warrants in the case Friday afternoon.
