Sources have stated that one officer was taken to Grands Strand Hospital.


As can be seen above, “Officer Down. Multiple units responding. Suspect possibly barricaded.”

MBPD from what I hear sounds like they have a house or building surrounded on Yaupon [Avenue]. Someone shooting out window. Possibly 2 victims. SWAT on scene.
