NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The North Charleston Police Department (NCPD) took one female into custody on Thursday following a shooting and vehicle pursuit.

According to NCPD, officers responded to the 1700 block of Remount Road around 6:55 p.m. in reference to a shooting, and located a male victim. The victim was taken to Trident Hospital, and there is no word on his current condition.

Officers later learned that the victim and the suspect are “acquainted through a family relationship and the incident [was] part of a domestic situation.”

After locating the victim, NCPD officers sent a description of the suspect vehicle to nearby agencies, and officers with the Hanahan Police Department located the vehicle. When Hanahan PD attempted to conduct a traffic stop, the driver fled.

During the pursuit, an NCPD cruiser and a Hanahan PD cruiser were involved in a collision.
