North Charleston Police Department officers responded to the 5600 block of Read Street around 12:45 a.m. and found four .45 caliber shell casings in front of a home. According to the incident report, neighbors reported hearing between four and six shots minutes earlier.

A witness who was walking down Read Street at the time of the shooting said he "could hear bullets flying past his head" right before he took cover behind a nearby car. The witness said he saw what he thought was the suspect from a distance, but was not able to identify him or say which way he ran off.

The report states another witness at a nearby gas station said she heard four gunshots and then heard someone scream "you missed me you (expletive) (expletive)."  That witness said she did not see the person who screamed that.

The shell casings were taken into evidence, police said.
