NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A woman says she was almost struck by two vehicles in a gun battle in North Charleston which led to the death of 36-year-old Kadena Brown. 

Authorities released the 911 audio in which a woman said she was in her vehicle at a stoplight at Dorchester and Montague early Sunday morning. 

"I was making a left on Montague from Dorchester Road and two guys are high speeding, shooting at each other and we almost got hit," the woman tells the emergency dispatch operator. North Charleston officers responded shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday to reports of two vehicles chasing and firing shots at each other around Lawrence Street and Constitution Avenue.

The woman reported hearing two distinctly different guns firing in the area of the stoplight, with a total of five shots fired.

Witnesses reported a dark-colored vehicle, possibly a Blue Saturn View, chasing a silver Chrysler 300 turning west onto Dorchester Road. Police say the vehicles chased each other on Dorchester Road to Ashley Phosphate, to the area of I-26.

Investigators believe the silver car was exiting Ashley Phosphate near Northwoods Boulevard onto I-26 East when the passengers in the other vehicle mistook Brown's Chrysler 300 for the one they had been chasing and fired four rounds into the driver's side door and window, striking her once.

Some time later, another 911 call is made by an employee at an Exxon gas station on 2330 Ashley Phosphate Road.

"A guy came in and told me that I needed to call police because there was a woman in the parking lot who had been shot," the caller says. 

According to witnesses, there were four bullet holes in the car which had gone through a wall and crashed into another car. 

Authorities say the driver, Brown, died on Sunday,hours after she was struck by gunfire while she drove her vehicle in North Charleston.

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

Investigators were seen along I-26 at Ashley Phosphate on Tuesday looking for clues in the incident.
