Police are investigating a fifth shooting in four days in North Charleston.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Thursday outside Philly's House of Cheesesteaks and the S&L Supermarket, bot located at 3842 Rivers Avenue.

Reporter Harve Jacobs arrived on scene minutes later to find EMS officials preparing a stretcher for a male victim who was shot in the leg.

North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said the victim told police he was walking to the supermarket when a man got out of a car near Gullah Lane and started shooting at him.

The victim then ran behind the supermarket, where police were called, according to Pryor.  The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

No suspects have been identified.

After reporting 13 murders in 2012, North Charleston is on pace for 18 murders this calendar year.
