UPDATE: Coroner confirms self-inflicted wound in Horry County Councilman Bob Grabowski death; Colleagues mourn loss

Colleagues of Horry County Councilman Bob Grabowski continued to mourn Wednesday as news spread of his death.

Autopsy results showed Grabowski died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his right side, said Robert Edge, Horry County Coroner. Grabowski was found in a field behind PTR Industries in Aynor, where he was the purchasing manager.

Councilman Gary Loftus said Grabowski was rather straight forward, whether he agreed with someone or not.

“He and I have had our differences, like everybody does,” Loftus said. “But most of the time we were together and on the same page.”
