NCPD: Brothers shot at in Labor Day armed robbery

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston police are investigating a Labor Day armed robbery that ended in gunfire.

Authorities say the victim was in a room at La Quinta Inn in North Charleston around 2:24 a.m. when he was approached by a man who demanded money. After initially refusing, the suspect allegedly lifted his shirt to show a handgun, at which point the victim handed over his cash.

A report states the victim and his brother followed the suspect, who got into a blue Mercury Grand Marquis and drove down Rivers Avenue into the 10-mile neighborhood. 

When the suspect got to the area of Robertson Avenue and Longleaf Road, he allegedly jumped out of his vehicle and fired shots at the victim's car. The victim's car was hit twice and became disabled.

The victim told police he and his brother jumped out of the car and ran to call for help. The victim's car continued down Robertson Avenue before hitting a small tree at the end of the block.

Police responded to the scene of the shooting to discover the suspect's Grand Marquis in front of a home on Longleaf Avenue, and several shell casings in the front yard.

The suspect has not yet been located. He was described as a black male, approximately 6'0" with a stocky build. He was wearing a white shirt, jeans, a black hat, and had a small amount of facial hair.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
