One person was taken to the hospital after a shooting in Pawleys Island, according to Georgetown County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Jason Lesley.

Lesley said the shooting happened around 1 p.m. in the 2700 block of Waverly Road.

Waccamaw Elementary School and Waccamaw High School were placed on lock out, which means normal activities are still taking place, but there is a heightened awareness, according to Ray White, with Georgetown County Schools.

There is no imminent threat to any schools in the area, according to the sheriff's office.

We have a crew at the scene and will bring you updates as they come in.
