NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has released the identity of the 24-year-old woman who was fatally shot Thursday night in North Charleston.
Elizabeth Aldridge, of Charleston, died at approximately 6:02 p.m. at the scene of a shooting on Pine Ridge Circle, Charleston County Deputy Coroner Kimberly Rhoton said.
Police responded to the 2090 block of Pine Ridge Circle where they found Aldridge lying in the roadway.
According to a newly released report, the responding officer saw a blue sedan sitting in the middle of the road with someone hunched over next to it. The officer said bystanders waved him down and saw the victim on the ground and another woman attempting to help her.
NCPD officials said the victim was lying on the ground in the door jam of the front side of the vehicle.
The responding officer said he and two other officers then removed the victim from the door jam in order to perform life saving maneuvers.
Authorities say officers and responding paramedics attempted to save the victim’s life but police say they were unsuccessful and she died at the scene.
A responding officer said he spoke to a woman who said she had let the victim inside her home to use her restroom and caught her trying to steal stuff from her apartment.
The woman then told the victim to leave which she did, a report states.
The woman told officers that she then heard gunshots outside and ran out to find the victim was shot.
