SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

A runner came across what appears to be a beached bull shark on Sullivan's Island Wednesday morning.

The runner, Steve Colman, said he came across the shark while passing by Station 18 around 6 a.m..  He took several photos of the shark, which was dead.

Colman said it looked like the shark got stuck between the beach and a sandbar as the tide went out. 

Town maintenance officials responded to the scene and removed the shark from the beach.

The shark appeared to be at least five or six feet long.
