NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has identified the Ladson woman who died Wednesday night at a shooting at a Rivers Avenue bar.

Zarria Mariah Gadsden, 22, died at the scene of the shooting at the North Park Grill in the 8700 block of Rivers Avenue from a gunshot wound, Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said. Police said the shooting happened just before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Earlier on Thursday, North Charleston Police spokesman Harve Jacobs said 24-year-old Taneisha Brown surrendered herself to detectives. Brown faces charges of murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a violent crime, Jacobs said.

Officers and other emergency officials arrived on the scene and found a woman laying on the floor just inside the bar, a police report states.
