NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - North Charleston Police responded to a shooting late Tuesday afternoon.

Incident reports say police responded to word of a shooting that involved a victim bleeding in the middle of Ashley Phosphate Road.

Police responded to the incident at 5:44 p.m. Tuesday, and incident reports say officers found a man laying next to a black Chrysler 300 near intersection of Ashley Phosphate Road and the I-26 on ramp.

Officers say the man was “bleeding profusely” from his right leg, so a policeman grabbed his tourniquet and attempted to apply it on the leg of the victim.

While cutting cloth out of the way and preparing the tourniquet, EMS arrived and took over caring for the victim, incident reports say.

There was no immediate word on the victim’s condition.
