DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities with the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office are continuing to investigate a shooting in North Charleston.

On Thursday, the sheriff's office released the incident report on the Wednesday afternoon shooting.

Around 12:37 p.m., deputies responded to an address on Stratton Drive for a report of a 20-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his leg.

The deputy then found the victim on the kitchen floor suffering from two gunshot wounds to his leg.

The victim told the investigator that he did not know who shot him, and he was transported to Trident Hospital.

A witness said she and the victim went into the Family Dollar on Ashley Phosphate and when they came out of the store, the suspect's car was parked next to her vehicle.  She said an occupant in the suspect's vehicle asked the victim if he remembered him.

According to the witness, as she and the victim went into her vehicle, the suspect began to fire at her vehicle and struck the victim in the leg.

Another witness reported that the suspect was actually sitting in the back seat of the woman's car and was trying to buy drugs from the victim. The witness said when the victim told the suspect he didn't have any, the suspect got out of the vehicle, walked around the passenger side and began to fire a black handgun into the vehicle.

When deputies asked the female witness why she drove the vehicle from the scene, she said the suspect was still shooting at her and she got scared. She told deputies she drove the car toward the rear of a home and stopped when the vehicle drove into a ditch at the side of the residence.
