CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Police say they have a suspect in custody after shots were fired at a King Street business early Thursday morning.

The initial call about shots fired into the Smoothie King in the 300 block of King Street came in at 5:37 a.m., according to police spokesman Charles Francis.

Police have not released the identity of the suspect, but say they will do so after charges have been filed.

City police were on-scene for more than an hour processing the scene. Two bullet holes and shattered glass could be seen in the front of the business.
