Man shot dead in Berkeley County

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A man was gunned down in a Berkeley County community Wednesday morning and deputies are trying to find out who wanted him dead.

The fatal shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. on Gladiola Way in Russellville. Investigators say the victim, 23-year-old Chad Williams was taken to MUSC where he died.

Detectives spent the day in and near Williams' home looking for evidence. A neighbor said he heard several gunshots.

"I was shocked but then again I was not shocked," said neighbor Sherman Glover. "I tell you why because of the gun shots, they weren't bird hunting."

Deputies were questioning people who knew the victim Wednesday afternoon.

The shooting is still being investigating by the sheriff's office and the coroner's office. Right now investigators do not have any leads.
