Victim in fatal Goose Creek shooting identified, girls in critical condition
BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - ?
After a full night of searching for the man suspected in a Goose Creek home shooting that killed a woman and left two teenage girls in critical condition on Wednesday afternoon, authorities are reporting they have no leads, yet.
Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury said Tammy Flowers, 36, died in the incident.
The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office is looking for Darryl Edward Flowers in connection to a shooting at 52 Elmwood Place off of Medway and Pine Grove roads. Tammy Flowers was Darryl Flowers' wife, Salisbury said.
The sheriff's office say they believe Flowers resided in the home where the shooting took place. Investigators say Flowers is the uncle of the two teenagers who were transported to the hospital.
Rhea Williams lives just a few houses away. She knows the victims well, especially the girls' aunt.
"You saw her everyday go to work, and I know she had her two nieces who she loved very, very much," Williams said.
Williams say she and he husband had had some interaction with Flowers as well. She says while she never thought of him as dangerous, she says he was always a little off.
"We did know him, not real, real close, but we've seen him around the neighborhood," Williams said."We've seen him a few times, and, just recently, I think less than a week ago, he was sitting with my husband, and my husband learned they were having problems."
A neighbor who describes the area as "quiet and calm" says she was in disbelief over the incident.
Deputies reported locating Flowers' vehicle off of Amy Drive where authorities searched a nearby wooded area.
Investigators say they learned that after Flowers ditched his vehicle he contacted a friend, who did not have any knowledge of the shooting. According to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, the friend drove Flowers to a location in Lincolnville. Deputies say when his friend went inside, Flowers drove off.
