SOCASTEE - A student is in custody while a resource officer recovers from an afternoon shooting at Socastee High School Tuesday.
According to Horry School District Public Information Officer Teal Britton, the shooting happened about 2:00 p.m.
Sgt. Robert Kegler with the Horry County Police said a resource officer was struck by shrapnel from gun fire. The officer's injuries are not expected to be life-threatening.
The Fraternal order of Police for Coastal Carolina’s website featured officer Karney this past summer.
It showcased an event that he and Officer Marcus Rhodes were instrumental in coordinating. They helped organize the 2010 Special Olympics Torch Run on April 7. The run started at Ripley’s Aquarium and ended at Socastee High School.
Officer Rhodes is the school resource officer for Carolina Forest High School and was involved in a student altercation last school year. On Oct. 16, 2009, Trevor Varinecz, a CFHS student, used a knife to stab Rhodes multiple times. Rhodes shot the student in self-defense and the student died.
