NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston police say they are investigating a shooting outside an apartment complex early Friday which left a 20-year-old man with wounds to his shoulder and groin.

According to an incident report, the shooting happened a little before 12:30 a.m. in the parking lot at 6951 South Kenwood Drive. Witnesses at the scene told police the shooter sat in a gray sports car in the parking lot “for a long time,” as if he was waiting for someone, before he got out and walked over to a group of people sitting by a white Lincoln.

Witnesses said during an ensuing argument, the suspect fired four to six shots at the 20-year-old victim before running back to his car and drove off. Police said the suspect dropped his white hat at the scene before fleeing, and another witness said he thought he saw the suspect trying to pick something up off the ground.

The victim’s family drove him to Trident Hospital for treatment of his wounds.

Officers said they recovered one casing from the scene.

Witnesses described the shooter as a heavy-set black male standing about 5’8”, wearing a white t-shirt with some type of print on it and blue or black jeans.

If you have any information regarding this shooting, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
