Investigators search scene in Moncks Corner shooting

Posted: Updated:
BERKELEY COUNTY, SC - The investigation continues today into the shootings at a party on Tish Lane in Moncks Corner. 

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s office says the homeowners where the party occurred are cooperating with authorities.

Shoes lay at the scene near ditches where investigators believe partygoers left them trying to escape the shooting on Saturday night.

Neighbor Rosemary Smith says she had two nieces at the party.

“One of them say they had to dodge, and jump into the back  of a car or truck just for security.”

Longtime resident Joseph Jamison, Jr. lives less than a mile away and had a son at the party.

“I thought something might have happened to him, because I know how it is with him.”

On the streets of the Longridge community near Tish Lane, neighbors are concerned.

Kathy Simmons, “It made me cry it really did, my kids are grown now, we used to have parties like that for the kids before they moved, no problem. But from what I understand, it was for the whole Low Country not just the kids here, so that invites trouble into your neighborhood.”

Berkeley County investigators had the Berkeley County sanitation department out here trying to drain this ditches near the scene, they tell News 2 they believe some of the kids jumped in here during the chaos and hope to find clues about the shootings.

Capt. Bobby Shuler with the Berkeley Co. Sheriff’s office told News 2, “It is too early to determine if there is any criminal charges to be brought against the homeowners, as the investigation develops we will consult with the solicitor’s office concerning this matter.”

We also asked if the homeowners were required to have insurance for a party like this, Capt. Shuler replied “We do not have an answer for that question, but certainly will look into that matter to see if any special insurance is required for such an event.”

The Sheriff’s office is asking anyone in the community with information about the party to call Crime Stoppers.
