Elroy Junior Miller, 34, was pronounced dead on the scene after police responded to a shooting call on Maple Street about 9:45 p.m. Saturday, Vaught said.
Miller was shot in the chest, the Horry County Coroner’s Office said.
Witnesses have been uncooperative with investigators, Vaught said, and police have no suspects.
Miller was a former Loris resident, who moved to the Tabor City area with his family several months ago, Vaught said. He was on Maple Street in Loris “most night,” Vaught said.
