State Law Enforcement Division agents will investigate an officer-involved shooting that happened in Horry County Friday morning, authorities said.
No police officers were injured during the shooting, which happened shortly before 10:15 a.m. on Myerlee Drive just outside the city of Myrtle Beach, according to a news release from the HCPD.
According to SLED, one person was taken to a local hospital after being shot during a confrontation with officers.
Police were responding to a request for a welfare check when a person presented a firearm at officers. Authorities had received a call about someone barricaded in a home.
Patrol officers and a special operations team responded to the scene.
"There is no remaining threat to the community," the county's release said.
The shooting comes less than a week after a Myrtle Beach police officer and another man were killed during a shootout in the city.
On Saturday night, witnesses said a gunman opened fire on police. The gunman died and 23-year-old officer Jacob Hancher was killed.
Hancher's funeral was held Friday.
