Horry County Police officers and members of the SWAT team responded to a Myrtle Beach apartment complex on Saturday afternoon.
Lt. Robert Kegler told Newschannel 15 the call originally came in as a suicidal person at the Cape Landing Apartment Complex. While officers were on scene they heard what they believed to be a muffled gunshot.
The SWAT team was dispatched and when they entered the apartment they found a victim dead with a self inflicted gunshot wound.
Nobody else was hurt.
