We have new information about the shooting in Berkeley County last weekend that ended with several people shot, including one college student who was killed.

We now have some of the 911 calls that came in just after the shooting took place.

Caller: “Hey, somebody, somebody, somebody shot!”

The calls began coming in right after multiple shots were fired early Saturday morning at a block party in the Longridge community of Berkeley County.

Caller: “There was a lot of shooting going on. I honestly can't tell you, I just... We need police our here as soon as possible.”
911: “Alright, we already have them on the way. Ok?”


Investigators say six people were shot, and at least seven guns were used during the crimes.


Caller: “He got shot in his chest.”
911: “In his chest?”
Caller: “On the left.” 
911: “Ok.”
Caller: “By his heart, by his heart, by his heart.”

Calls also came in about college student, Ariel Morgan.

 Caller: “Come around Tish lane in Longridge. We got a girl shot. We got a girl down here in Longridge.”

Morgan died from her injuries.

Caller: “She's outside, it's an outside party. She's halfway, I don't know, I guess she tried to run and hide under the car and then she got shot 'cuz she's halfway under the car, halfway not. If she's bleeding, it looks like maybe around her legs.”

Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury says her cause of death was a gunshot wound to the leg. He says official autopsy results will not be back for several weeks.

Due to the hundreds of people at the block party, and how narrow Tish lane is, it made it more difficult for emergency crews to get back to where the victims were located.

But as you can see from the 911 transcripts, they were on their way as quickly as they could get there.

Caller: “Hurry.”
911: “Yes, ma'am. They're coming as quick as they can.”
Caller: “Thank you.”
911: “You're welcome.”

Berkeley County investigators say they are now working on leads, including some specific names of people who may know more about what happened. However, at this point, they still do not have any suspects they can name.

Investigators need your help. If you have any information about the shootings, call Crimestoppers at 843-554-1111 or log on to www.5541111.com.
