VIDEO: Police: One in custody after gunfire prompts school lockdown in North Charleston

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Police officers have arrested a Summerville man accused of firing gunshots at a car in North Charleston which led to a lockdown at a nearby school Monday morning.

The North Charleston Police Department arrested 18-year-old Ke’Vonte Trevon Green.

His arrest stems from an investigation that started on Monday at 9:53 a.m. when officers in the area of Patriots Boulevard and Ashley Phosphate heard 10 to 15 gunshots.

Officers then received information that a man suspected of the shooting was seen fleeing from behind a nearby Sunoco gas station.

Staff at the Church of Christ said they also heard shots being fired. Officers reported locating five shell casings in the grass between the roadway and the parking lot of the church.

In addition, a homeowner on West Blueglass Drive said a rear window of his home was struck by gunfire; crime scene recovered a projectile at that scene.

Officers eventually located the suspect at a home on Filly Court.

A report states the suspect told officers that he did fire his Glock 10 mm handgun at a sedan that was traveling on Patriot Boulevard towards Appian Way, and that he discarded the gun in the woods after he fled from the scene.

The police report states the suspect was charged with discharging a firearm within the city limits and unlawful carrying of a firearm since he did not have a concealed weapon’s permit.

During the police response, Dorchester County School District 2 sent an automated call to parents advising of a brief lockdown at Fort Dorchester High School. The school went off of lockdown and resumed normal activities at 10:42 a.m., the message stated.
