Two people injured in shooting outside of Conway, Horry police searching for suspect

Two people were shot at a Conway-area home on Tuesday and police spent the night scouring the area for the suspect.

Around 9 p.m., officers responded to Landmark Road and Swinton Road for the reported shooting, Horry County police spokeswoman Mikayla Moskov said.

The victims went to the hospital for treatment, she said. The extent of their injuries was unknown.

Police searched the area for the possible shooter. Moskov did not release any details of the suspect, but anyone that lived nearby who saw something suspicious was asked to call Horry police or 911.

Residents along Landmark Road were asked to shelter in place while police canvassed the area. The request was still in place as of midnight.

“Right now it’s an active an ongoing scene,” Moskov said.

Landmark Road is off U.S. Highway 501 and several police cars remained in the area hours after the shooting.
