According to thepostandcourier, a performer who scared a group at a South Carolina haunted house was shot by a man who said he thought he was grabbing a prop gun.

The employee at the Zombie Experience in Myrtle Beach was hit in the shoulder and is expected to be ok.   Keal Brown told investigators that members of his group fell to the ground after the performer scared them and he felt a gun hit his foot. He told investigators he believed the gun was a prop and was part of the haunted house experience when he allegedly picked it up and fired twice, striking the costumed employee once in the shoulder.

Brown is accused of giving the gun to his 15-year-old son as they left the popular tourist attraction near Broadway at the Beach. He later fled to the Charleston area and was taken into custody on April 18 with help from the U.S. Marshal Task Force.

The employee was treated and released from a local hospital.
