NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A 16-year-old who is facing a murder charge in a Monday night shooting in North Charleston has waived his right to a bond hearing.

Officers arrested the teen Thursday afternoon, according to North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor. The boy’s identity is not being released because of his age.

The teen was arrested at a home on Clements Avenue, Pryor said.

The shooting happened shortly before 9:30 p.m. on Monday in the area of Baker Avenue and Adair Street. Officers responded to a report of shots fired and found a man who had been wounded. Crews took the victim to an area hospital where he died overnight.

Pryor said investigators learned an argument between three to four people took place prior to gun shots being heard.

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office identified Saquan Knight, 19, as the man who died in the shooting.
