Charleston County News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The man killed after a shooting on Hanover Street in Downtown Charleston Thursday has been identified.

According to Deputy Coroner Shane Bowers, Timothy (Timmy) Haman Jr., 41, from Charleston, died at MUSC on August 8th at 8:13 pm as a result of a gunshot wound.

Charleston police say they responded to Hanover Street around 7:40 p.m. Thursday after reports of several shots being fired. When they arrived on scene they say they saw people giving Haman Jr. CPR.

A man who offered his assistance after the shooting said he saw someone on the ground attempting to give the victim CPR. That man is a military veteran who said his instinct was to help save the victim’s life, so he jumped in to help as well.

“I ended up taking over rescue breaking, the individual was shot in the chest at least one time – I heard once, I heard twice, I don’t know, I didn’t see – they were applying pressure the entire time. My shirt is in my truck covered in blood,” said Jonathan Lubecky.

A vigil for Haman Jr. will take place Sunday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m. on Hanover Street.

Anyone with information about that shooting is asked to call Charleston Police at 843-743-7200.
