BERKELEY COUNTY, SC - One person was killed, and two teenagers were injured during a shooting in Berkeley County Wednesday evening.  The Berkeley County Sheriff's Department says it happened around 4 p.m. on Elmwood Place.

Authorities have identified the victim killed in the shooting as 36-year-old Tammy Flowers, the wife of the suspect in the case.

Deputies say Darryl Flowers was picked up by the Maryland State police Thursday around 11:45 a.m. after a traffic stop and short chase.

Berkeley county officials tell us Flowers is in a Baltimore hospital with self-inflicted knife wounds. After he is released from the hospital he will be extradited back to Berkeley county to face one count of Murder, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of kidnapping.

The body of Flowers' wife was discovered just inside the doorway of the home Wednesday. Two teenagers were also shot. They have been transported to the hospital. There has not been an update on the extent of the two teens' injuries.


The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office issued a warrant for the arrest of Darryl Flowers in connection with this shooting. He fled from the scene in his own vehicle, but it was found abandoned on Amy Drive, in a neighborhood not far from the location of the shooting.

He then called a friend to ask for a drive to Lincolnville, Flowers then stole his friends SUV.

William Harrison was asleep at his home on Elmwood Place when shots were fired down the street at 52 Elmwood. "I heard what sounded like three gunshots... what really woke me up was the cavalcade of police cars and ambulances."

Another man who lives on the street says he recently talked to Darryl about some problems Darryl was having. "I was there as a friend. Apparently I wasn't strong enough to hold him up."
