Duo charged in late night N. Charleston shooting

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Officials say two men have been charged with attempted murder after a man was shot in the face Tuesday night in North Charleston.

Police say they were called to the 7900 block of Cricket Court around 11 p.m. following reports of a possible shooting. Officers say they arrived to find a male victim face down in a parking lot suffering a gunshot wound to his jaw.

The victim told police, "Chris shot me," but could not say anything else due to his injures. He was transported to MUSC.

According to a witness at the scene, Christopher Fultz and Anthony Brown Jr. came to the home to collect money they were owed. While at the home, the two suspects began to argue with the victim.

The witness said she went inside to get money while the argument continued, and returned to find the victim lying on the ground bleeding from his face and Fultz holding a silver revolver. Both suspects then got into a black vehicle and drove away.

Another witness said she hear a loud "pop" during the altercation.

Officers located Fultz at a home on Desmond Avenue just before 11 p.m. and took him into custody. Fultz, 32, and Brown, 25, have been charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

The shooting at Cricket Court was the third shooting reported in North Charleston Tuesday.

The first happened Tuesday afternoon in the area of Clarion Hotel on 3640 Dorchester Road. Police say one victim was transported to the hospital, and one person has been arrested in connection with the shooting. 

The second shooting happened shortly before 8 p.m. in the area of the 3300 block of Osceola Street, with two people suffering non-life threatening injuries. This shooting happened about a mile away from the Dorchester Road shooting.

Police say the three shooting are not connected.
