Goose Creek Police Department investigators are trying to find the person or persons who were involved in a shooting early Sunday morning.
According to the police report, Shanta Nelson tells police that she was shopping with 31 year old Isaac Poinsette after four O-clock Sunday morning at the Circle K on Stephanie Drive. She says she felt uneasy about a car in the parking lot. They noticed the car following them to Poinsette's Madeline Drive home in Boulder Bluff.
Once at the home, a man got out of the suspect car and showed them a gun and demanded money. Nelson was able to get away and run behind the house when the suspect and Poinsette began fighting. Nelson was behind the houses in a ditch area when she heard shots fired.
Police say Poinsette was hit multiple times. News 2 spoke with his aunt, Billie Bradley, "he's just a quiet, to himself kind of person. He don't really bother anybody. And for this to happen to him of all people, it's just like wow… Just to see him with all those tubes, and life support on him. It was kind of rough."
Bradley says, unfortunately, this isn't the first time the family has dealt with something like this, "I had a niece that was killed by a gun in 1993." It was especially tough to let her sister know about what happened with Poinsette, "she couldn't take it because of the fact it just brought back the memories of her daughter being killed."
At this point, she says her family would like two things, "we're just asking for prayer, and if anybody knows anything to just come forward and let us know."
