NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the North Charleston Police Department say a 17-year-old boy may have been responsible for a shooting that left him and a 20-year-old man injured.

Authorities say they are working to determine the involvement of Terrence Kendall McNeil in a shooting that happened on Gordon Street this past weekend.

On Sunday afternoon, officers responded to a home on Leeds Avenue in reference to a shooting. Police then found the 20-year-old victim on the floor of the kitchen being treated by a relative. Investigators say the victim had a wound to his left wrist.

The victim said he was in a car on Gordon Street when two suspects, who were armed with guns, approached him and tried to rob him.

According to the victim, one of the suspects, who goes by the name "T", shot him. The victim told police he grabbed the gun as it went off, striking him in his left hand. The victim said his attacker then ran away and fired shots as he ran off as the victim returned fire.

When officers escorted the victim to MUSC, police saw a gold Hyundai near the EMS entrance. Investigators say the subjects in the car were transporting another gunshot victim, McNeil. Police say McNeil had suffered a possible gunshot wound to his neck and ear.

North Charleston police say investigators are working to determine McNeil's involvement in the Gordon Street shooting.
