NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The North Charleston Police Department is investigating after a motorist reported getting shot at as he was heading to work on I-526 Monday morning.

On Monday at 5:30 a.m., officers responded to the area of eastbound I-526 at Montague Avenue for a report of a vehicle that had been hit by gunfire.

The 50-year-old victim said he was on his way to work when he saw two vehicles behind him blocking traffic.

According to the victim, one of the vehicles, a silver Mercedes, exited off the interstate at Leeds Avenue, then got back on the highway and drove behind the victim.

A police report states the second vehicle, described as a silver or dark grey 4-door sedan, pulled up beside the victim.

The victim said he then rolled his passenger side window down and asked the driver of the sedan if everything was okay.

The victim told investigators that an unknown male subject in the sedan then fired two shots at the victim's car.

Police say the victim's vehicle was struck two times in the passenger's side of the car.

According to the victim, when he pulled into the emergency lane, the silver Mercedes continued on I-526, while the dark grey vehicle left the interstate and got onto East Montague.

Officers said they located a small piece of brass from the passenger's side door and a small piece of casing from the side floor board.
