NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A teen suspect remains in serious condition Monday after an officer-involved shooting wounded the teenager Sunday afternoon in North Charleston.

Officers were called out to the Ferndale neighborhood on Dalton and Emden streets after reports of shots fired by several men. An officer who was en route to the location encountered two men, one with dreadlocks, walking in the area of Gaynor Avenue and Hock Street.

When the men saw the officer's car approaching, they immediately turned and headed in a different direction, police say. The officer got out of his car to speak with the two men, but both kept walking away from the area.

According to police, the officer was able to catch up with the man with dreadlocks, 17-year-old Carlton Lamont Pringle, who turned and pointed a handgun at the officer. The officer removed his service gun and fired several shots, hitting the suspect.

Investigators recovered a Highpoint 9 mm handgun from the scene and the Pringle was taken to MUSC in serious condition. Authorities say the other man was last seen heading toward Durant Avenue.

The State Law Enforcement Division has been called out to investigate this shooting. The officer involved in this shooting was placed on administrative duties pending SLED's investigation.
