According to a spokesperson from the North Charleston Police Department, an infant was found with a gun shot wound inside a house on Tulip Street off Rivers Avenue a little before 6 p.m. Thursday evening.

The infant has been transported to the Medical University of South Carolina in serious condition.

"Upon arrival officers located the child in a car seat in the living room suffering from a gunshot," North Charleston spokesperson Spencer Pryor said.

"Officers located a handgun on a nearby couch. Narcotics were also found in plain view in the residence," Spencer Pryor added.
