A man suffered injuries during a shooting Thursday night in the Conway area, making it the fourth shooting this week.
Horry County officers were called about 6 p.m. to an incident on Harper Road that left a Coastal Carolina University student with at least one to two gunshot wounds in his back, police said.
Officers found the 23-year-old victim walking in the road shirtless, and he told police he felt like he was going to pass out and asked for a ride to the hospital, a police report states. The victim told authorities he was robbed by unknown suspects who took about $500 from him and dropped him off on a dirt road, according to a police report.
The victim said he traveled to a bank near CCU before the shooting incident, a police report states.
EMS met with the officer and victim and took him to the hospital for treatment for what police said were non life-threatening injuries.
No suspects have been arrested following the shooting that police called an isolated incident, and officers are continuing to investigate, according to Krystal Dotson, Horry County police spokeswoman.
The night before the man was injured a woman was shot within Conway city limits and was taken to Grand Strand Medical Center for treatment after the incident happened on Creel Street at about 10:50 p.m. Wednesday, a release from Sgt. Darren Alston, with Conway police stated.
Around 11:58 p.m. Tuesday, a man was killed in a driveby shooting at a home on Beau Street in the Conway area, outside city limits. Darryl Hunte, 48, of Conway, died in the shooting after he was struck by a bullet that ripped through the front of the home.
Six other people, including an 8-year-old boy, were there when the shooting happened, and no one else was injured, police said.
On Friday afternoon, Dotson announced an arrest had been made in connection with the fatal shooting, and said the suspect’s name would be released once arrest warrants were served.
The first shooting of the week was reported Monday when Conway police were called between 10 and 11 p.m. to the 1400 block of Fifth Avenue within the city in reference to shots fired. A 68-year-old man said his window was shattered when a bullet blasted through that night, a police report states.
The man told police he heard about three or four gunshots in front of his home then found his window broken. No one was hurt in the shooting, authorities said.
Alston with Conway city police said Thursday afternoon Conway officers didn’t believe a connection existed among the first three shootings.
Dotson, with HCPD, said Friday morning that police are still investigating the shootings that occurred in the unincorporated areas of Conway in Horry County, and that police didn’t believe a connection existed between the incidents.
