Police are investigating a shooting reported late Saturday in Myrtle Beach, according to the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

Cpl. Tom Vest said officers were called to Quail Marsh Apartments, 2005 Greens Blvd., just before midnight. One person was injured and is receiving treatment, he said.

Authorities saw a hole "in the upper left quadrant" of a unit's "main door" upon arrival, according to a police report. Police also located a gold shell casing.

The male victim had a "heavy flow of blood coming from his face" and swelling on his left cheek, the report said.

He described the suspect as a Black male with dreadlocks who had been wearing a white or gray hoodie.

The victim was transported to the hospital.

A woman who called police said she had heard a loud "pop" and initially thought the sound came from fireworks.

Police had not announced any arrests in the case as of Monday morning.
