It is with heavy hearts that College of Charleston Public Safety mourns the passing of another SC law enforcement officer.
At approximately 4 PM on January 12, 2021, Horry County Police Office Lance Corporal Melton “Fox” Gore was removing debris from Highway 22, when he was struck and killed by a vehicle. Lcpl. Gore was a 23 year veteran of the department, serving in the environmental services unit for much of that time.
Lcpl. Gore’s death marks the third SC law enforcement death this year, all in a 12 day period, all of them traffic related.
The College of Charleston Department of Public Safety mourns for our fallen brother and stands with the Horry County Police Department in this horrible time.
Lcpl. Gore was 57 years old. His end of tour was 12 January 2021.
Rest east, brother, we have the watch now.
