VIDEO: Chuck E. Cheese Shooting Scene

WEST ASHLEY SC (WCSC) - Chuck E. Cheese's issued a statement Tuesday morning about a Saturday night shooting in its West Ashley location that left two people wounded.

Charleston Police continue to search for a person of interest involved in the shooting that occurred at approximately 8:30 p.m.

The statement from the company reads:

"Based on the information currently available to us, a firearm was discharged, injuring 2 men, during a verbal dispute between several individuals inside our West Ashley store on Saturday, Oct. 11 at approximately 8:15 p.m. We are thankful to local authorities for arriving quickly and containing the situation.

Police say the individual pictured in stills from surveillance video had a verbal argument with the victims while inside the business. Authorities say the man left after he was asked to leave by management. Police say a short time later, the individual returned, hopped over the counter inside the business and confronted the victims again.

Police say at that time, two shots were fired inside the business.

"The person who did this committed a reckless act in the crowded business with no regard for the well-being and/or safety of the many patrons inside, to include many young children," police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Officials say two male victims were taken to MUSC to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation remains ongoing as police continue to search for the suspect.

If you have any information about the incident, you are asked to call the Charleston Police Department or CrimeStoppers at (843) 554-1111.
