Police looking for shooting suspect in West Ashley
WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston Police Department is trying to locate and detain a person who they say shot someone at a West Ashley apartment complex.
Police responded to the Palmilla Parkside Apartments just before 7 p.m. in reference to a shooting. That is on Ashley River Road near the St. Andrew’s Parks & Playground.
When officers got there, they found a victim who suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Police spokesperson Elisabeth Wolfsen says the shooting suspect was a person the victim knew.
“Officers received information of the suspect possibly being in the area [of Palmilla Parkside Apartments], so they’re attempting to locate and detain him,” Wolfsen said.
Police say there is no threat to the public but it is best to avoid the area.

The department is also investigating an apartment shooting in downtown Charleston Saturday night.
