BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – An investigation into a deadly shooting at a home near Goose Creek is underway.

It happened around 7:00 a.m. in the Wind Gate neighborhood; the victim had been shot several times and died at the scene.

“We received a call about 7:15 a.m., shots fired, and there was a young male victim lying in the front yard,” said Maj. David Brabham with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office.

Details about the shooting are mostly unknown. Maj. Brabham said they are following up on leads.

Several neighbors gathered on Gains Mill Drive for hours after the shooting while investigators gathered evidence and processed the scene.

“I believe he had some family members in the house at the time, but they were not direct witnesses to give us information about what happened,” said Maj. Brabham.

Investigators do not believe there is a threat to the community.

“We do believe it is isolated to our victim, of course, we want the public to be aware and cautious and if they know anything to reach out to the sheriff’s office.”

While no one has been taken into custody for the deadly shooting, investigators are following some leads. “We do have a couple of leads that our investigators are following up on – it’s just too early to release that information right now.”

Anyone who may have information about the shooting is asked to contact Crimestoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111.
