WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston Police Department is investigating a shooting between two juveniles who were injured in the incident in West Ashley.

Authorities say the incident happened around 6:20 p.m. at the Pamilia Apartments on 1385 Ashley River Road.

An officer said he was patrolling Palmilla Apartments when he saw a juvenile running in front of a building.  According to a report, the juvenile was yelling,"I got shot, I got shot."

The officer said the juvenile was holding his right forearm and was "bleeding profusely."

According to Charleston police, another juvenile was shot in the leg.
