A man is in the hospital after a North Charleston shooting after which the victim drove himself to the emergency room.

At around 3 a.m. Thursday, police responded to an area emergency room in reference to a walk-in victim with a gunshot wound to the torso.

When asked how he got to the emergency room, the victim said he had driven himself.

The victim said he was standing in the area of Azalea Drive and Kent Ave. with six of his friends when a car pulled up.

The victim said he recognized the suspect and approached. He then said he heard a man yell obscenities and a shot was fired. The victim said he didn't know where the shot came from or why the shot was fired but believed the shot was meant for one of his friends but wasn't sure.

According to the incident report, the victim gave multiple locations of the shooting, including El Cheapo on Dorchester Road, the Hess near the railroad tracks on Azalea Drive and then Azalea Drive and Kent Ave.

He was taken to an area hospital for additional treatment.
