Charleston Police charged a North Charleston man in the Jan. 30 killing of a man on an I-26 on-ramp.

Teddy Maurice Frazier Gadson, 25, is charged with murder, according to Charleston Police spokesman Charles Francis.

The murder occurred on the Meeting Street westbound on-ramp to I-26, police say.

Gadson was taken into custody about 6 p.m. Thursday by Charleston Police officers and U.S. Marshals in the 1200 block of King Street without incident, Francis said.

Police responded to the scene at approximately 11:40 p.m. on Jan. 30 after someone called 911 about a car stopped on the on-ramp and a man lying in the roadway. EMS took the victim, later identified as  48-year-old Dominique Sheppard of North Charleston, to an area hospital.

Sheppard was suffering several gunshot wounds to the chest, Francis said. Sheppard died the following morning. 

Investigators say the victim's vehicle made a left turn from Meeting Street onto the on-ramp and say they believe the victim became involved in some kind of argument with someone in another vehicle.

Upon a closer examination of the car, white transfer paint was discovered on the rear driver's side window of Sheppard's car. A traffic reconstruction expert determined Sheppard's car collided with the passenger side of a white car shortly before the murder occurred, according to the affidavit.

The investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information you are asked to call Consolidated Dispatch at 843-743-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
