Police investigating 2 reported shootings

NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - North Charleston Police Department investigators are trying to determine if two shootings reported early Tuesday morning are related.

Police spokesman Spencer Pryor said dispatchers received a call around 2 a.m. Tuesday from a victim claiming his vehicle had been shot at on Dorchester Road near Constitution Avenue.

Pryor said Charleston Police Department officers responded to the St. Andrew Garden Apartments in West Ashley, along with North Charleston police, and found the victim standing with his vehicle, which had several bullet holes.

Officers then canvassed the area near Dorchester Road and Constitution Avenue and found several shell casings in the roadway, Pryor said.

Around that same time, North Charleston police learned that a shooting victim called police from Allway Street in downtown Charleston and said he was shot at Club Pulse, located at the corner of Cross County and Dorchester roads. However, Pryor said police were patrolling Club Pulse at the time of the reported incident and confirmed there was no gunfight.

A passenger with the shooting victim then told police they were actually shot at while driving on Interstate 26. The shooting victim was taken to MUSC for treatment of a gunshot wound to his side, Pryor said.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed.
