MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) - Horry County police released the name of the man they say caused a police stand off Saturday afternoon.

According to the Horry County Police Department Facebook page, Gary Kenneth Stegall was charged Sunday in connection with yesterday's stand off in Weslin Creek Subdivision.

He is being held at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

Police responded to a call at a home on Gallant Street near Holmestown Road around 12:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

According to Sgt. Robert Kegler, a spokesperson for the police department, Horry County Police Department was on the scene to escort a female to gather some of her belongings from her home after a domestic dispute.

While this took place, the male suspect came home. Police said a confrontation followed, during which shots were fired.
