A witness followed suspects quickly fleeing a Murrells Inlet Kangaroo store after a robbery and said one of the suspects fired what the witness thought was a handgun while at a stop sign, police said.
Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called about Tuesday night to the Kangaroo on Wachesaw Road where a store employee reported the incident, police said.
The employee said at about 11:30 p.m., two suspects approached the front of the store where the employee was on the phone and ordered the employee to enter the business, according to a press release.
The suspects displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money, authorities said.
A witness at a traffic light saw the suspects running and quickly getting into a vehicle, and followed them up to a stop sign at Sunnyside Avenue. The person in the passenger seat leaned out of the window and discharged what the witness believed to be a handgun, according to the release.
No one was injured in the incident, police said.
Anyone with information on the incident can call Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office at 843-546-5101.
