Police Blotter: Man laughs about shooting dog
So far no arrest has been made in connection with a dog killing that took place Aug. 21.
A 20-year-old man from Bluebird Street says his neighbor shot and killed his pit bull.
The complainant said his dog stays chained outside his home but somehow slipped out of his collar. He said he saw the dog was missing when he went to take the pet inside his home because it was starting to storm.
According to the report, the suspect is accused of shooting the dog either on his property or at a nearby boat landing. Blood was found at the landing by the complainant’s mother.
The dog owner said he asked the suspect if he shot the dog. The man reportedly said “yeah and I got rid of him. That should teach you to keep your dog locked up.”
He was allegedly laughing as he answered, the report states.
The case was expected to be presented to a magistrate for possible prosecution.
It is estimated it will cost about $1,800 to repair the damage caused by vandals at Waccamaw High School Aug. 22.
School leaders say someone used black spray paint to paint over the numbers on 166 parking spaces in the school’s parking lot.
Unfortunately, the school’s security cameras were not working at the time so there are no suspects.

During the drive, the man reportedly held the gun to his wife’s head several times while threatening to kill her and her family.
