Charleston County authorities released 911 calls recorded in the moments after Tuesday's deadly shooting in Ravenel.

"Our neighbor came in just now saying her, there's been a shooting, and her entire family's been murdered," one caller told dispatchers.

That caller said a woman had crawled to her door on hands and knees for help. She directed authorities to lot 48 at the mobile home park where deputies say the shooting happened.

"A man's got a gun and he's shooting," a second caller says. "I don't know him, but he's got a girl down on the ground, Miss, please hurry up."

Dispatchers assure her help is on the way.

"I heard the shooting and somebody beat on my door fast, and I come to the door and I didn't see nobody. Then I open my door and I see her, and she said, 'Please call the police,'" the caller says.

Another caller says he can see a man dragging a woman across his yard. 

"Are they in your yard right now?" a dispatcher asks.

"Yes, ma'am, yes, please hurry, please hurry" he says.

Two of the callers describe a black male in his late 20s wearing a white or gray t-shirt and black pants.

One of the callers stays on the phone with 911, describing what he can see as the man pulls the woman into a vehicle moments before Charleston County deputies arrive on the scene.

"Oh, the police got him," he tells the dispatcher.

Deputies responded to the Ravenel Mobile Home Park shortly before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

One of the deputies spotted and stopped Kenneth Ancrum as he was trying to drive out of the main entrance of the mobile home park with the surviving victim, according to an incident report. 

Deputies approached the home at lot 48 where they found three women inside, all dead of gunshot wounds.

The Charleston County Coroner's Office identified the victims as Betty Mungin, 55; Alexis Mungin, 29; and Armani Mungin, 8. Authorities confirmed Alexis was pregnant; a friend said she was expecting twins.

The surviving victim suffered multiple wounds and was transported to MUSC where she was treated and is expected to survive, deputies say.

Ancrum faces charges that include three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, one count of kidnapping and one count of possession of a handgun during the commission of a violent crime. A judge set bond at $500,000 for the weapons charge Wednesday but denied bond for the attempted murder and kidnapping charges.

Bond was automatically denied for the remaining charges because only a circuit court judge can set bond for a murder charge.

Ancrum is being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center pending a bond hearing before a circuit court judge.
