WEST ASHLEY SC (WCSC) -

Police say a fatal shooting early Thursday morning in West Ashley appears to have been domestic-related, police say.

Police responded to an apartment building in the 1900 block of Hazlewood Drive at approximately 12:45 a.m. where they found a male victim lying on the ground behind the building, according to an incident report.

That victim, Zackary Aiken, was transported to MUSC where he was pronounced dead.

Charleston Police spokesman Charles Francis said Aiken knew the occupants of one of the apartments and was attempting to gain access to the apartment through a bedroom window when the shooting occurred.

The investigation is ongoing, Francis said.
