Early morning shooting leaves one dead, two wounded

Shortly after 2 a.m. this morning, Officers responded to the area of Montague and I-26 due to an off duty officer who was working at the Waffle House on Saul White hearing gunshots that appeared to be coming from a moving vehicle.

Shortly after, dispatchers received calls of two vehicles traveling toward Park Circle shooting at each other. 

Officers found two vehicles wrecked on the inner part of Park Circle. A silver Ford Edge and a Red Dodge Charger. The front seat passenger in the Charger was found deceased from gunshot wounds. A rear seat passenger was located in the middle of the road with a gunshot wound to his leg. The driver of the Charger was not on the scene but arrived about an hour later at MUSC with a wound to the arm.

Officers also recovered illegal drugs and weapons from inside of the Dodge Charger.

Detectives are working to identify the occupants of the Ford Edge and the investigation is on going.
