Rumble Police officer killed in Myrtle Beach shooting that wounded another officer

A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, police officer was killed and another was wounded when they responded to a domestic incident and came under attack by a gunman who died at the scene, authorities said.

Myrtle Beach Police Chief Amy Prock identified the slain officer as Jacob Hancher, who was sworn in as a police officer less than a year ago after serving as a department community service officer for four years.

“He was a dedicated public servant who upheld his oath to protect this community and made the ultimate sacrifice,” Prock said. “Please keep Jacob, his family and his fellow officers in your prayers.”

A second officer was also injured, according to SLED. That officer was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

“Following the exchange of gunfire, the suspect was discovered deceased. No other injuries were reported,” a SLED press release stated.
