NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner's Office has identified a 36-year-old woman who died Sunday, hours after she was struck by gunfire while driving her vehicle in North Charleston.

Coroner Kimberly Rhoton says Kedena Brown, of Goose Creek, died at MUSC Sunday afternoon as a result of a gunshot wound.

Brown was reportedly driving her vehicle when she was shot by the occupant of a car that was involved in an earlier shooting incident.

According to North Charleston officials, officers responded shortly before 2 a.m. on Sunday to reports of two vehicles chasing and firing shots at each other around Lawrence Street and Constitution Avenue.

Officials state that witnesses reported a dark in color vehicle, possibly a Blue Saturn View, chasing a silver Chrysler 300 turning west onto Dorchester Road. Dispatch reportedly continued to receive calls about multiple sightings of the shooting the vehicles it continued down Dorchester Road.

Authorities state that the vehicles chased each other on Dorchester Road to Ashley Phosphate, to the area of I-26.

Police officials say the situation indicates that the silver car was exiting Ashley Phosphate near Northwoods Blvd. onto I-26 East. The dark vehicle reportedly fired four rounds into the driver's side door and window of another unrelated Chrysler 300, striking the female driver once.

The victim was transported to MUSC in critical condition, authorities state. Police announced Monday the woman died overnight while at the hospital.

Officials say that officers were able to stop the original fleeing Chrysler 300 on I-26 and detained four subjects.

No arrests have been made.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
