Authorities: Goose Creek murder suspect captured in Maryland

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office say a man wanted for fatally shooting a woman and critically injuring two teens in Goose Creek has been captured in Maryland.

Authorities say Darryl Edward Flowers was arrested following a short chase on JKF Highway Thursday morning.

According to the sheriff's office, Flowers was pulled over driving an SUV stolen from Lincolnville, SC.

Flowers was wanted in connection to a Wednesday afternoon shooting that took the life of his wife, 36-year-old Tammy Flowers, at a home on 52 Elmwood Place. Two teenaged girls, identified as Darryl Flowers' nieces, were also shot and are in critical condition.

The Maryland State Police reported that they attempted to pull Flowers over during a traffic stop on JFK Highway on Thursday. Officers say once they stopped Flowers' vehicle following a short chase, Flowers attempted to harm himself with a knife.

Flowers was taken to a nearby hospital in Baltimore for self-inflicted wounds. Authorities say he is currently being treated and is expected to survive.

Officials with the sheriff's office say once the extradition process is complete, deputies will go to Maryland and bring Flowers back to Berkeley County where he faces one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of kidnapping.

On Wednesday afternoon, Berkeley County deputies responded to 52 Elmwood Place, a home investigators believe to be Flowers', in reference to a shooting and located a deceased woman and two teenagers who had been shot.

Investigators then began a search for Flowers which turned up his vehicle on Amy Drive.

Deputies say after Flowers ditched his vehicle, he contacted a friend who drove Flowers to a home in Lincolnville. The friend reported that when he went inside his home and came back out, Flowers and his vehicle were gone.

During the search for Flowers, the sheriff's office noted that Flowers had ties to New York and may have been traveling to that area.
