VIDEO: Deputies investigating double fatal shooting in Cross

CROSS, S.C. (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a late night shooting they say left two women dead.

Deputies responded to the Cross community overnight Monday where the two victims were found, Chief Deputy Jeremy Baker said.

Investigators believe the shooting took place between 11 p.m. and midnight, he said.

Deputies received a call about a possible motor vehicle accident at around midnight, Dep. Carli Drayton said. When officers arrived at the scene, they found two women suffering gunshot wounds, she said.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office has not yet released the victims’ identities. Baker said they do not yet have any suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office at 843-719‑4465 or Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111.

People said they learned about the murders from seeing it on the news.

Residents Arthur and Stella Clark said it’s usually quiet in that particular area.

“Most of the time this area like I said is really safe. We don’t have anything happen in this area. Most of the time it’s in the other area of Cross where we have most of the violence at,” Arthur Clark said.

”I feel sorry, I feel sorry for the two ladies, I feel sorry for them,” Stella Clark said. “God gives us life, nobody should take our lives but God.”

”This might sound off the wall but I’m a minister also, so all you can do is pray that the situation gets better,” Arthur Clark said.

The names of the victims have not been released.
