A 51-year-old complainant told police she heard a gunshot ring out when she was near the home, so she called 911 and waited for help.
Police arrested Dunn in connection with the 16-year-old’s death and took him to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, where he was released Tuesday on $5,000 bond, records show.
The shooting was accidental, according to Lt. Raul Denis with Horry County police, who declined to comment further on the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
