Man gets 12 years in fatal N. Charleston shooting

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A man was sentenced to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter in a shooting that took the life of a 35-year-old man.

Court records state that Christopher Gadsden pleaded guilty on Tuesday in connection to the shooting death of Arthur Singleton on May 25, 2010.

Investigators say after Singleton was shot several times, he was able to give officers a description of the suspect's vehicle before being transported to MUSC where he later died.

According to investigators, the driver, Stanley Phillip Greene, led police on a short car chase before Greene and his passenger, Gadsden, fled the car.

Gadsden was arrested following a brief foot chase and Greene was later arrested at a home on Barony Park Lane.
