NCPD: Man shot during alleged armed robbery


North Charleston police are investigating after a man claims he was shot during an armed robbery early Wednesday morning. 

Police responded to the 1500 block of Larry Street just before 6 a.m. for reports of a shooting. 

At the scene, officers spoke with a victim who said he was confronted by a male suspect who pulled out a gun and demanded money. During the alleged robbery, police say the victim was shot and the suspect fled the scene. 

Police and K-9 officers attempted to track the suspect, but could not locate him. 

Dunston Elementary was temporarily under a "Code Yellow" lockdown while police searched for the shooting suspect. The lockdown has since been lifted. 

The victim was transported to MUSC for treatment.
