NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A man has been charged after North Charleston officers responded to a report of gunfire Wednesday night.

Officers arrived on scene shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Londonderry Road where two people said they were at a home when someone began shooting at them from down the street.

A short time later just before 9 p.m., officers were following up on the shooting in the area of the Windsor Hill Plantation neighborhood after seeing someone matching the description of the suspect, later identified as 30-year-old Jeremy Enique Palmer.

When officers attempted to make contact with Palmer, he ran on foot and discarded a firearm during the pursuit, according to police. He was found in an apartment a short time later, police said.

Palmer has been charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and sale/delivery of a stolen pistol.
