CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County deputies say they are searching for three people they believe to be involved in a drive-by shooting Tuesday night.

Deputies responded to Casper Road at approximately 9:30 p.m. to a report of people inside a vehicle firing at a home and then leaving the neighborhood, according to Charleston County Sheriff’s spokesman Andrew Knapp.

As the deputies pulled into the area, they saw a vehicle matching the description of the one involved in the shooting, which they pursued to Sugar Hill and Willtown Roads near Hollywood, he said.

At that point, deputies said three males got out of the vehicle and ran away. Knapp said they are believed to be armed.

K-9 units and the sheriff’s office helicopter joined deputies in the search of woods and nearby communities. Knapp said no one was immediately found, but that efforts to find the three males were continuing.

No one was wounded by the gunfire.

Investigators have not yet released a detailed description on the males they are searching for.

Anyone with information can call dispatch at 843-743-7200 or 911.
