Officials have charged one man with two counts of attempted murder after an early morning shooting on Friday in North Charleston.

Charleston County Dispatch says officials responded to a call that came in around 1:05 a.m. Friday.

The shooting happened at the Ashley Shores Townhomes in North Charleston.

North Charleston police say the two victims were standing in front of an empty apartment when a silver Dodge Avenger drove by with the driver firing shots from the front passenger window hitting both subjects.

One victim refused medical treatment and the other was transported to MUSC.

Shortly after the incident, officers saw the silver Dodge Avenger parked at a gas station at Reynolds and Rivers. After seeing the police vehicle, the subject sped through the red light.

The vehicle failed to stop and the driver lost control of the vehicle. He then crashed into two parked vehicles on Tulip St. After crashing, the driver fled on foot but was caught shortly after.

A handgun which was discarded during the pursuit was also located.

Winston Dunham of North Charleston has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.
